Life is good! Life is inspirational!

Regrets

What are regrets?
They are the forlorn branches of a dead tree
Bereft of leaves with no hope of new life
They are the waves that have rolled onto the beach
Leaving a watery trail with no might to go further
Yet drowning the plains of tomorrow
They are the driftwood on the shore
Past existence now broken down
They are flowers wilting in the meadow
And yet too they can be seed pods of weeds
That can grow into new forms
Harbouring the past inhibiting the future
Akin to fuel spent in the tank
Short term motivation, yet then only to exist in a vapour
A scent of something burnt away that lingers without purpose
What are regrets?
They are yesterday holding up today to hinder tomorrow
