Hold not to the regret of yesterday
Rather in steadfast measure,
Cling to the promise of tomorrow.
For what futility of purpose does it serve,
To descend immobile, into the abyss of remorse
Yearning for what was lost or has not been,
More despair, in the company of bleakness.
Shake off the miserable melancholy and reverse
That energy into earnest utility, and towards
The unbridled optimism within the sphere of hope.

Cherish each of the moments you live
And live to cherish the moments lived.
For it is but a short time given to all, within which
To embrace the gift in all its dimensions,
And make the best of the precious opportunity.
Rather than squander it in the hopelessness
Of despair and self-doubt, nay don ye the vest of
Steadfast courage and resolve undeterred to
Triumph and soar with the eternal winds of hope
Towards the promise of the fullness of life.
Therefore, my friend, minimize regret . . .
Love life, live free, be kind, and live well.
