A Happy Ending

Remorse and regret, I mustn't forget
Remind me that Life is a process of Learning
Indeed for I sorrow'd; 'twas always upset
As the Truth was met with painful discerning

But now my eyes are open-wide,
Grew to love what I once despised
I am no longer sick inside-
I just feel happy to be alive

    We all should learn to accept and love ourselves for who we are. No matter what anyone else thinks. Our happiness is more important than the opinions of others! A great message in this poem! Well done!...The rhymes are great, except, "despised" and "alive" don't quite rhyme for me. Just my opinion! :)

    Thanks, Kel. I'll pull a near rhyme if I can get away with it, but they don't always work. Thanks for the read and review :)

    Regret makes us dwell in perpetual sorrow. Mistakes make us learn......and prosper! Great write Archaic.JM

    Without remorse and regret we wouldn't know what happiness is. Right now, I'm regretting that your poem isn't longer. I love it!

    Thank you, Beverly. After declaring that I'm happy to be alive, I just didn't know where else to take this piece. But I am ALWAYS open to suggestions and helpful, constructive criticism. Thank you for dropping by and for the read and reply :)

    I have some time on my hands these days so I will be stopping on your poems starting with this one. Your first stanza flowed magnificently but the second stanza switched away from the rhythm that you began with. Overall though I thought it was beautifully crafted.

    I adore you, my friend. I told you in another reply that this is one of the many reasons I appreciate you so much: you offer me the constructive criticism that I crave- that I need and want and cherish! You are right on the mark, and I can clearly see your point. I am going to do some revising on this piece; I agree that it needs it. Thanks for the compliments and help :)
