I try not to delve overmuch
into pointless pursuits of the past
lamenting those foolhardy losses is such
a bummer, I'd much rather cast
my gaze on the future and things I can touch
the joys I can try to make last
or at least look back on contentedly
when gripped by occasional reverie.

A lifetime has passed since that day
when I wondered how great life would be
having no other reason to pray
than to thank the good Lord I was free
a person convinced he would find a way
to succeed to some kind of degree
and though it was all just a frivolous lie
I wish I could reunite with that guy.
