MY GREATEST REGRET
When I look back at this life of mine,
My eyes run with water like the brine
As anguish tears at me with its powerful canine
And I am condemned to, with it, dine
Maybe i would have been fine
If I had, even a little bit gone over the line.
My greatest regret is I never really lived
In stringent rules, I so much believed
That somehow I aborted, with my own hands, life that was in me conceived.
Yesterday, I took stock of my life and discovered I was deceived
Deceived into doing things, by which I am now aggrieved.
I caged me to the extent that whatever was not done, I believed was not meant to be done.
I stayed in the circle of rules until time had, with all of its best, gone.
Of the extraordinary elements he came with, I got none
Because I followed rule number one
Never go out of this area, son!
Hence I never left that zone
Even when good called my phone
I checked with the given rules etched on my heart.
I could not find a provision for it
So I thought it a worthless bit
But now that I think of it, it pounds me to grit
Because that which I called a worthless bit is now a hit.
I forgot I had the Creator's kit
That could make pita out of a flour pit
But not seeing it in the rules, I quit.
I quit it just like that
When by now, I could have earned a pat.
It has not been done before?
Maybe it was waiting for someone like you to reach the shore
So take on it.
