Lots of things I haven't done
but I will stress more on ones I have left undone.
I regret not ever talking to Liya
before she submitted her life to her maker.
I wish I had reached for her like she did for me
but I thought we had all of eternity.
I regret that I took things lightly while growing
thinking I would forever be young, free and smiling.
I wish I had spurned violently into life
had I known that the violent forcefully took life.
I regret that I had lost my life at a very tender age
to the sweet talks and thougts of the foggy future days.
I wish I had abandoned the bosom of my parents
and sail through life's harsh and adverse deterrents.
Can I still hold other days?
use them as a lift back to good ways?
But if it turned otherwise
then I would always regret and wished I had always been wise.
