I'm going the poetry route with my free offering to celebrate the day. Here, have a sonnet!*




Regret


When back into my past, restored anew,
And waking in myself, returned to youth--
An unsought turn which I could not undo--
In hope of fixing errors all uncouth,
Without a backward glance I carried on,
Though back was forward on a different road,
And changed the fates wherever I had gone,
Where time and fortune's rivers never flowed.
My hubris smothered infants still unborn;
My pride turned happy memories to stone--
I never should have wakened on that morn
To dig this grave and end here all alone!
Eternity awaits my presence yet,
Where I will linger on in my regret.

Nayad A. Monroe


* With apologies to those of you who have seen it already and are not getting something new on this day.

Thanks you and another inspired me
My addition to the day is a Limerick:
There once...

My hubris smothered infants still unborn
Nice line - nice metaphor.
