Fear Regret

Among the worst of troubles is, “Maybe I should haveā€¦”
But there will come a point when the worry of “what if?”

will be dwarfed by the wonder of what could have been
and you will learn to act.

Courage is not always so noble.
Sometimes it is only fear of regret.

Burn from the agony of “if only I’d”
and you learn to leap to flee from that fire.

Life slips away
and chances rarely re-emerge.

Risk rejection
if only because you fear regret.
