Ruminative Emotions


One may as well play a victim,
lone persona being wronged

When choices were always open
and pickings multiple pronged

Remorse and fraught penitence
would prove hopelessly in vain

The end would stand worthless
against otherwise blissful gain

Never late is to accept a folly
and willfully make an amend

Mighty oak too gets uprooted,
to gales when doesn’t bend

Past can never be undone
or what future might beget

Present directs the imminent
to be cheery or in state regret
