Some Regret

Sometimes, I speak my mind,

Knowing I should

Regret not talking, I would

Silence might be more unkind



Over the years, I’ve seen it

Illness, loneliness, injury, fear

Humans, animals, even plants got hit

The hammer strikes; observation is severe


Being Young

It’s a time of rejoicing

Travel, family, career

It may last a lifetime: This cheer

As long as there’s healthy, fun living
