Some mistakes cannot be undone

They haunt us with the rising sun

Memories that hijack the waking mind

And racing thoughts that make life grind

Though we attempt to bury them deep

When we’re vulnerable there they creep

So how from this torture do we escape

And begin our story to reshape

By accepting that we all have flaws

And we aren’t prisoners to what was

Piece by pi...

Now gaze upon your own error.

Then a rebirth for all to see.

Some will rejoice, some will...

Go my darling, you'll fly. 

Full of joy, I cry. 

The apple of your father's  eye.

You cannot walk the journey for another man.

You cannot gift him with the perfect plan.

We all stand in the universe of our own creation.

Many lust for the mantle of wisdom,

Only to create self-serving fiefdoms.


An old story stuck on reset.

What you give, is what you'll beget.

An old story stuck on reset.

What you give, is what ...
