Poem Hunter
DN Daniel Nairn ( / Bellevue, Nebraska)


Stop! Don't
linger over long gone regrets. Don't
think to change the past;
Out of reach but for the mind,
fool yourself with guilt
Cannot be used to fly backward;
There is only in front
The unwritten choices while
Permanent ink stays alway.
Use the past to alter future, Don't
waste the present. Mourn the past,
If you must, then
Learn from mistakes. Don't
spend your mind on them. Flee
far from Despair yearns for that
Is not There
yes, is gone. Don't
linger o'er regrets
Like mist shrouding a clear path
Snow on the road, or is it a field?
Use them, get on with life's
The Non-mistakes

hmm...I think the 'Don't's at the end of those lines really emphasize the point-wow I sound like I know what I'm talking about! ! Cool. I also like the capitalizations. -landrey
