When I was Young,

I thought then

Life's like a Canvas

Sometimes I'd paint on it,

En sometimes I'd write on it

What i didn't realize is that,

This particular canvas is irrevocable.

You don't get to undo your mistakes,

You just move on past them,

But hold on that wisdom.

Now that I'm grown,

I'm a bit rational.

I choose my colors wisely,

And a bit more artistically.

En when i write, nowdays

Believe me,

I write with all my heart.

I'm even careful nowadays,

with whom I share with this beautiful canvas av mine.

    What a great write. Life is what you make it and you cannot erase your mistakes but you can learn from them.
