I wish that we could wind back time
And fix the things we broke.
I don’t mean using glue and tape
Because with those the cracks still show.
I long for ways to fix in such a way
That you would never know it broke.
But really that could never work,
There are things that fall and smash
And no matter how we wish
We need to let it go.
I hate the fact that some actions we take can have irreversible outcomes. I tried once last thing to try and save my relationship with my mum the other night. It backfired and now I know that there is no going back. I took a chance and it didn’t work.
I’m not sad that I tried, but I am sad that there is no coming back from it. Even if we were to form some sort of a relationship again, it would not be what it used to be. It’s so broken that it is now like the vase that has smashed. You can cobble it back together with glue but if you look closely you can still see the cracks.
I’m sure that everybody in the world has an experience like this and I think that it’s sad because if we could all just forgive then this wouldn’t happen. Forgiveness is one of the most powerful things in this world and if you can do one thing today, then try and forgive somebody who you are holding a grudge against. It will lighten your load and there’ll be just a little bit more love in the world, which is never a bad thing.
