you have the choice of regretting everything you've ever done
and of accepting the consequences and amend moving on
everything is on us everything is our business
and we can disregard these facts and riot under the sun
or we can savor our memories of lusty earthly living
and say they were emblems of some other times now gone
and settle into the long evening of age
where all our living is alive in one transfixing remembrance
there is your choice
to detach and appreciate
or to attach and die of sins
that have already done their damage
whatever you choose goes forth with you so choose wisely
it is so difficult to know the difference between wanting live and wanting to die...
