“Gains From Loss” by, Maxwanette A Poetess

Gains from Loss

Hurtful feelings, plastered on that proverbial wall.

Regrets and sorrows, hoping they would fall.

 

If we could turn back the hands of time,

Would we cease to exist…at all?

 

Lost time, missed moments, stuck deep in the past.

The falling rain, disguised tears, that flow ever so fast.

 

Strolling through, “The Hall of Memories”,

watching life in mirrored frames.

 

Would of’s, Should of’s, Could of’s, racking the mind,

laying the blame.

 

No way to go back, to undo what has already been done.

Impossible to take away from the zero, and adding in a one.

 

The point is to embrace the pain, learn from the mistakes,

and accept the gains.

 

Stand tall and stay strong, coupled with your rights and your wrongs.

A wiser & happier person you will remain.

 

 

*Inspired by mistakes, loss, gains, and life lessons.
