|A victim of my own choices
Choices that seemed so right in the moment
Now seem so wrong in the big picture
I wasted my youth
Thinking there was a right and a wrong
And that the truth would set me free
Oh to be so young and foolish again
The truth is
The truth has left me old and bitter
Bitter at myself
Instead of walking gloriously in the light
I stager in the cold of night

Love to hear life stories, always interesting, well done.
That's one way of looking at it. ;)
Excellent poem and capture! :)
Awesome poem, Randy. I Know I have mispent youth and I regret it everyday.
Your poems Randy are always so beautiful.
whooof! gut punch with this poem.
anyone who desn't relate to this one, hasn't lived but a sheltered life
I'm with Mike, right in the guts. And I really like the image. This is a great poem but I would respond with the words of the actor John Barrymore;
“A Man Is Not Old Until Regrets Take the Place of Dreams”
Youth may be gone but there is still time.............to find a way to walk in the light. We all need to seek and find that path.
A thought provoking poem on a super image.
Magnificent choice of words and not many would ever say this about their selves.
Every experience has an opposite and from the clash of the two a new perspective emerges .... and so on ... the old unavoidable Hegelian dialectic. Powerful image and words!
Quite interesting to read - a bout of pessimism - such things happen..
Wonderful capture and awesome thought provoking poem!
This poem gets one to thinking. :))))) If some of the choices wouldn't have been made when we were younger then we mite not be the same person as we are today. :))))) My friend look at all of the rite choices you have made in your lifetime. :))))))) This is a most gorgeous image. :))))) Thank you for sharing all of the beauty you see. :)))))) Carry A Smile In Your Heart :)))))
Bones lost their youth...but soul, spirit and heart...never ;-)
Powerful poem of the regret and disillusion that can come with age. Your image of a cold and dark world goes perfectly with your words. Excellent work.
