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.

I think we all strive to live a good life and that when we get to the end we will look back and think that it hasn't been wasted. Another well written piece which I enjoyed reading.

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 enjoy the simplicity of this poem.
I see it as a reminder that no matter how different we all are, there are certain things that we all have in common.

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.

Well done.

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.

The rhyme and meter here work well.

I'd like to see some specifics--the good and bad you have fought, for example.

To be parallel, use "words I've said" in stanza 1.

Last line--period belongs inside the closing quotes.

I love your style, it reminds me of my own. Please deliver me from those writers who, in an attempt to sound deep and intriguing, wind up just sounding confused, out of step and untalented.
