Another Chance

“And the wild regrets and the bloody sweats,
None knew so well as I:
For he who lives more lives than one
More deaths than one must die.”

– fr. The Ballad of Reading Gaol, Oscar Wilde

(for Pochay:   Unless you are the wind, attack no windmills.
        For tougher battles ahead, conserve your strength.
        Nothing is perfect; living is packed with ills.
        One can move hills in more ways; live life full-length.)

you cannot escape the feeling
of wanting to live your life again.
there is every reason to try
for a start.

the roads you took
led to nowhere.
so much time you have lost.
on memories, you cannot live.

what you have done
cannot be undone!

you can only start
once again.

(but how?)

– between loving and unloving is feeling.
– between doing and undoing is thinking.
– between living and reliving is believing.
