We've all made bad choices, that is the way we learn. But if we can reach the end of our life and know most choices were good, that's all anyone can hope to achieve. Well done, this is a really excellent poem. :)) Sandra
A very well-written heartfelt poem about looking back at your life and see wgerd you came from is always good to contemplate. We think we made a bad choice to pick but on the other hand we see it was the better choice.
The lives we live always seem to be documented in our memory far better than what other may know about us. But to live an open life is another step on the road to peace in eternity. Thanks for sharing your inspiration. I love reading your work and picking some lessons of life.
I would say "Well Done" now in capital letters. You write poetry every day and I love to read sonnets myself so I always enjoy your poetry. You are good poetry and an accomplished one which is not an easy task.
If we can say that our good choices outweigh the bad, then we can claim a life well lived. Contentment is what we strive for - as opposed to disappointment. If we have given more than we have taken - our conscience will let us sleep at night.
Such a lovely poem, Jaybird.
I love your smooth flowing rhyming poem. Your writing can help people every day make it through the rough aspects of life. This poem made me think and smile.
