If you knew then, what you know now, would you do it again?
We’d all love to get it right the first time
But sometimes a shot at a second chance is all we have left
A chance to get things right
An opportunity at peace.
An opportunity to reconnect and mend bridges.
It’s this shot at redemption that gives life its meaning
Inspiring that little bit of hope that ultimately keeps you going.
Without it, there’s really not much left to live for.
So don’t waste your time away on a lifetime of regrets
Thinking ‘if only’ or ‘what if’ –
It’s pointless, because history will always be confined to history.
Instead it may be time to look yourself in the mirror, at the risk of not liking what you see.
Because getting it right, means being honest with yourself.
It comes with the brutality of having to confront your own demons,
And being able and willing to take the hits.
So take your second chance.
Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope
And be determined to do things a little different.
Because doing things a little different, is the only way you’ll ever break the cycle you’re in.
