Hindsight’s Sight 

Forget please do
the tumultuous storms.
Leave behind what
from our regret’s born.

I would not be
what I have forgot,
but I try and see
that which I am not.

A learned person
looks back to discover
with their passions
that which to recover.

Leave behind
what regret finds.
Open your eyes,
not stuck in rewind.

For our tales do
make us this way.
Regret not or despair
will hold it’s sway.

Forget please do
the sinews of swine.
Age the precious
memories as if wine.

Quinch you must
your parched lips.
Do not let time
scar you on its trip.

Forget please do
paths that were wrong.
Set them aside,
see how you are strong.
