Grasp or let loose

Wrong decisions

Are painful

Holding onto them too long

Just because we made them

And we don’t want to admit

That we made a mistake

Can leave scars

Which can’t be erased

If you are holding onto

A bad decision

I understand how challenging

It can be to release your grip

And let the dream

Of what you thought might be

Slip through your fingers

And go it’s separate way

Yes, I comprehend

How disheartening

Being wrong

Can be

I also understand

That each time

We let a bad decision go

It becomes more difficult

To release the next one

Especially as the years pass

And there isn’t much time left

For overcoming bad choices

Don’t be fooled

Not making a decision

Is solidly deciding

To stay where you are at

And only you know

Whether that is right

Or wrong

For your life, heart, or mind

Every moment

We have a choice

Continue grasping or

Let loose
