Regrets

Sammyngton Nyondo

And here I stand with so many regrets,
So many possibilities marred with regrets.

I regret the times I couldn’t stand up for you when u needed me most,
I regret the times you stood up for me and I was ashamed of you,
I regret the things I said to and about you,
I knew they weren’t true,
But still I said them
Yet knowing the pain I put you through.

I regret the times I didn’t spend with you,
I repelled you like a disease when all you ever did was show me love,
I regret the silence and coldness I rendered to a helping hand,
I should have known better.

I regret not making it up to you,
My pride couldn’t let me to,
I regret not seeing you for who you are
My ego made me blind to truth
And here I stand with so many regrets,
So many possibilities marred with regrets.
