By Michael W. Raley
Given that hindsight is 20/20,
There is room for speculation and regret aplenty.
However, you had only the one chance
Under the given circumstances.
You made the choice and did your best,
Quit hounding yourself with grief
And put it to rest;
Don’t allow this to eat away at your belief.
You danced your dance,
But the music changed.
You thought you found your place,
But the chairs were rearranged.
You don’t have the time to dwell
On this perceived defeat,
As it will only result in a personal hell-
A cycle of regret and torment, which will only repeat.
Focus and finish.
Don’t let your spirit be diminished.
Take a breather, give yourself some space
Because you have a long way to go in this race.
