RDP Friday – Regret
I should have pushed my way to the front of the line
and held the door open wide for everyone else
I should have laughed harder
and not answered back
when I was spoken to.
I should have
I should have been more hateful
I should have been so much less
so I could have lived more
like the faces that rush by me
and call me friend.

No way do I believe the regrets expressed in this poem. Never drop your standards in the few of negative. outside pressure.
Those are dark thoughts, sometimes I have them and then I think- what if the day I chose to be cruel and indifferent I let someone who needed one kind word just one act of humanity and compounded their pain? So I never have pulled the plug. It leaves me to wonder how other people can and what drives them to it.
