REGRET

forget who hurt who
and just be

and do

forget time lost
to the grind --
our good minutes mined

employment endured
for a roof overhead
and a warm bed

and bread

forget
the judgment
of others

they don't have a clue
what it is to be you

and nor can you know
another man's woes

so don't envy his shoes
just sing your own blues --
four chords and a voice
not taken by choice
is all that you've got

it's simple as that

forget failures
and schemes
and back burner dreams

relish your day
for the hours ain't long
a glimpse of the sun
and then
you're just
gone
