Life would be infinitely happier if we could only be born at the age of eighty and gradually approach eighteen. Mark Twain

Stop the clock; better yet turn the clock around somehow
If I could only live all my yesterdays’ with the knowledge I have now
The mistakes I’ve made could be erased, in fact they never occurred
My memory would be of happiness and I would not have breathed that angry word
The day before yesterday would become tomorrow
I could repeat the good things and somehow divert the sorrow
For you see, Hindsight is twenty- twenty. This is a fact
And I would know the havoc created by that single thoughtless act
Instead of growing older day by day I would regain my youth
But even in my youth I would better know the truth
The cycle of life gives us this life and death will become our doom
But if the clock ran backwards one day I would reenter my mother’s womb

"If" is a little word which encompasses much meaning. Still, if we could turn back the hands of time and correct the mistakes made so that they never occured...that would take us back to Adam and Eve and their encounter with the devil. Indeed, a perfect world would then exist...and not this current distressed world. Sadly, in this fallen world we cannot reverse time, so we have to use our past mistakes to make today and tomorrow better not bitter! Mistakes are beneficial, because they are meant to mature us.
Your writes always stimulate my thinking, Lew. I like that. Hope you don't mind my ramblings, though. :)

There are things I can do differently. But I have found God, I could not write that a few years ago.

Excellent poem and well written, Lew,

As for me... I take hold of my mistakes, make ammends where applicable and understand, it is the pain within the mistakes which have made me who I am, today. Each day, I am given the chance to love more than I did the day before... each day, I try to do just that.

To do it all over again? No, thank you. I'm good with what I have been given... including every painful moment. Without the rain who can enjoy the sun?

Healing Hopeful Hugs~

Good thought to remember as we go forward each day and have no regrets of yesterday.
Reviewed by Jerry Bolton (Reader) 3/13/2011
That last thought doesn't appeal to me. However, I would definitely like to undo some of the things I have done over the decades. Yes indeed.
