Often i hear people say,
if only i can turn back time
I'll change a lot of things
I'll correct all the wrong things I did
And take another path instead
Take that other road not taken
One which can make me realize my true self with precious serendipity
Instead of taking the design path, I'll take the desire path people would think twice before choosing
Being deviant in any circumstance is so hard
Having to defy the society norm which pushes us to take safer route to ensure stable future
What is stable future anyway? What's in your eyes is not same as in mine.
We view worlds from a different vantage point. So what's the use of comparing.
We are even all different in every way. You can do what I can't and i can do what you can't. Accept your aptitude. Deal with your own pitfalls. That's how the attitude should be.
Why would we deny the other road not taken?
Why don't consider the opportunity people are too afraid to chase?
Why don't go follow what your heart says?
If only I had the courage
If only I had the strength
If only I had the capacity
I could've shown my truest ability
Using my mental clarity
And my utmost capability
To awaken my serenity
And eventually achieve my tranquility
Living in my own shoes instead of others's shoes
Vexing much it hurts so hard
Regret is dangerous and destructive
Regret is the force that could undermine your future and present
Just roll with punches
Sometimes it's hard not to feel regret
Regret, remorse - they are powerful enough to drag you down
Still, regret is necessary tool to make the better you
So that you won't repeat nor reiterate
The same bloody steps which make you you who you regret
