Right Where I Belong


You said you'd like to relive your childhood;

To somehow take a trip back in time;

To mitigate some wrongs that were done you;

Avoid the ones that did you a crime.

There's doors you think you'd now leave unopened;

Pathways once ignored that you'd take.

You'd like the chance to change your direction;

A chance to rectify a mistake.

But hindsight and regret are your devils;

They tempt us all to languish and pine,

They steal you from right here in the present;

Your hopes and dreams move backward in time.

It's time to forget,

But don't ever regret

Whatever you think has gone wrong.

Don't ever forget,

And never regret

That right here is where you belong.

See, hopes and goals are meant for the future,

They have no power stuck in the past.

Live your life by changing tomorrow;

Each dawning sunrise may be your last.

No accidents, no recriminations,

It's all just as it is: meant to be,

And all will meet their true destinations.

Look forward and I'm sure you will see.

I stand behind my every decision,

Still proud of everything that I am;

The past, with all its miscues and baffles,

Has brought me to this place where I stand.

I do not forget,

But I do not regret

Whatever in life has gone wrong.

I will not forget,

And will not regret

That right here is where I belong.

With this style that is quite timeless
and this kind of clear philosophical content,
I think that your work can be appreciated by many.

Honest, true, wise words, quite frankly, delivered...

Wow, I love this. Your thoughts are really directed and keeping in time, great message, too. I could never understand carrying the past around with you and have had so many friends and ex's who did just that to their detriment and self-destruction. I have to put this one in my library, great work.

Such words of wisdom...
You are correct we need to work on what we can change today...

Soulful Scott,

An exquisite take on embracing and living in today, forfeiting the err's of yesterday, and endeavoring to ever change for tomorrow. Anguish and regret have a place in our lives for just a time, as it halts our misguided path like a brick wall, causing time for self reflection, healing with new paths and new beginnings. Its when we Wallow and constantly Revisit our Hindsight that the claws of Regret sink into our bloody hearts ripping that which is trying to heal. Your words above are yet again like a modern day Proverb, and those that heed your wisdom and put it into practice are wise indeed. The colors of our life, whether good or bad, paint a picture that is beautifully unique and priceless.

"I do not forget,
But I do not regret
Whatever in life has gone wrong.
I will not forget,
And will not regret
That right here is where I belong"

Taking to heart your words this night and replacing them with the regrets I have laid to rest still trying to shadow me.

Wonderfully Written and Much Needed this Eve -- Deborah:)

This reminds me so much of Longfellow's "Psalm of Life"... a timely mesage in a more modern voice. --Charlie
