There will always be regrets.
Ones, we don’t want to face.
Even when death comes calling.
We refuse to do amends.

To leave a legacy of regrets.
Unresolved. Unsettled.
Don’t let regret eat away.
Such a heavy burden to bare.

The hurts. The fights.
Of keeping grudges.
Finding it hard to forgive.
Like a fester, eating away.

We carry this heavy baggage.
Its weight pulling us down.
We let pride be our shield.
Our heart pays the price.

A lifetime of regrets.
Time cannot turn back.
The need to heal. To fix.
Only closure brings peace.
