Choices are made from early in our lives,
The bad we try so hard to forget, we remember.
Mistakes can be many as we walk our Earthly path,
A thought from our mind can alter our day so quickly.
Through tragedy and triumph we need to learn, never forget,
You do not learn by forgetting as you plan your everyday,
There are always surprises and road blocks that we must endure.
You do not learn by forgetting in a world of hopes and dreams,
Take a moment to think no matter what the outcome may be.
