Restart

With people, there is no such thing
as starting over
You and i might try again, or harder
But cannot reset
to before we met

Past wrongs or rights
will always,
for worse or better,
remain.
They may be addressed,
turning even bads good –
but can never be erased

And if restarting were an option
who would benefit?
I for one would likely take
the same wrong turns,
make identical mistakes
without the truth learned
by failing the first time around

Starting over would be a waste anyway
Further waste comes by wishing we could
Go on, or don’t

but enough sad daydreaming
