If I would’ve known, what I know now,
I would’ve made different choices, I would’ve taken a different vow,
But hindsight’s regret, is a burden I must allow,
As I reflect on my past, and the mistakes I avow.
If I would’ve known, the consequences of my actions,
I would’ve made different decisions, avoided the distractions,
But hindsight’s regret, leaves me with a sense of dissatisfaction,
As I realize the impact of my mistakes and their fatal attractions.
The past is gone, and the present is all I have,
But the weight of my mistakes, is a burden I can’t outshove,
If I would’ve known, the consequences of my misbehaves,
I would’ve made different choices, and avoided the pitfalls and landmines.
But I can’t go back, and I can’t change the past,
All I can do, is learn from my mistakes, and hold fast,
To the lessons I’ve learned, and the realization that lasts,
If I would’ve known, the power of hindsight’s reflections, I would’ve avoided the cast.
