Words is wisdom here. We should never allow our mistakes of the past hind us back from moving forward. Each day offers new opportunities for self improvement. Do not waste a minute stuck in regrets.

This caught my attention for several reasons...the title for sure because going forward can be difficult for anyone. Your syllable count was exact for a 3-6-9 poem. You put out the facts in a plain and simple way and almost with a problem/solution spin on it. The poem could be helpful for a real life experience. It was relatable and most of all it leaves the control with the person/objectives they wish to accomplish. I really enjoyed this!

This is a nicely written 3-6-9 poem. So true. You can't chance the past. It is a
waste of valuable
time ruminating on the errors
They cannot be erased.beautiful photo to compliment your words. Good luck in the contest.

So true Carolyn, the past is history and if it is painful to remember then it is best to only look forward and forget it. I have moments in my life that I would much rather forget and I forgive those who were involved and am able to to move forward, much enjoyed, love Dolly x

This is a very good inspirational poem. You are absolutely right that it is a waste of time to worry about past errors. Looking and planning for the future is the best course of action.

This is an interesting work. It is a particular style or format but like Proverbs it gives sage advice. I like the graphics you chose. Thanks for sharing. Nice work.

Such a true verse, full of wisdom, yet so difficult to do. There are things in my own past that when and if they happen to enter into my active memory I just cringe. Even knowing there is nothing I can do to change them, I still shudder at the thought of them. But the best advice is as you say, "Think about objectives I wish to accomplish."

Very good suggestion and advice. Like getting a pep talk.
