Best Craig Cornish Poems

+ Fav Poet


I have no large regrets,
That is to say, no roads not taken
I would return to and travel.
I may, with some trepidation,
But no expectations,
Retrace footsteps of my journey.
There were things said and done
That pained a kind heart,
A well intentioned reach out
That was shunned,
And many ill conceived and immature
Actions, that looking back,
Were not worthy of the being
I hope I am now and can be.
For all of those I am truly sorry,
And yet, I still err too often.
I still, in an hour or a day,
Revisit and say no, that is not worthy,
But, as I look around and "feel" around
I would hesitate to change too much,
Because I would truly regret
Not having the wonderful love and family
And friends that surround me today.

    Every mistake, every regret, perhaps small, or even part of learnng. Although it is summed up in your last two lines, that yours were never too large to overcome. I love the upbeat side of this poem, that gives a sense of peace.
