Looking Back at My Past


I lay down, shut my eyes
And dared to go back
A part of me, my past
Dug deeper as far as I could
Decisions I made back then
That led me to where I am
There were some things
Choices I have made
That could’ve been better
But when I reached the part
Where I have met you
All regrets faded away
Because I know in my heart
Those bad choices I’ve made
Led me to your arms
And I wouldn’t trade that
Even for the world.

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

Thanks Eileen! We may have some regrets but finding the right person whom you want to spend the rest of your life with make us forget those bad choices we've made.

That is a beautiful summary of lifes choices that lead us to the now. I have no regrets, for if I did, I would not be here in this place. It would be very empty here without her.
Thank You

Rob

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
