Backwards Thinking

Sometimes how you feel can change as often as the weather 
Sometimes out of sight and out of mind don't go together 
They say that absence makes the heart grow fonder 
Perhaps that depends on which thoughts you ponder 
With all that happens there is good and bad in everything 
To every situation it all depends on what you bring 
We all want to come out remembered for good 
But we don't always act and speak like we should 
The deepest thoughts weigh heavy on our mind 
But our biggest worries should be left behind 
Whatever you do, don't live in the past 
Your present and future move way too fast 
Regret is a shield from experiencing new 
Opportunities that quickly become too few 
Grasp each one but with open arms 
To be open and free never harms 
See with your soul, not your eyes 
Indecision and regret you should despise 
Your time to live is now. 
Whether or not you know how 
Learn along the way 
Better you will be each day 
Stronger inside 
In others confide 
The true path 
Follows aftermath.
