Grieve no more, oh heart!

I have made a lot of mistakes in my life. I have cried, I have regretted, I have cursed myself over and over and wished to die.
But then, amongst all the blues, I find this poetic mysterious alter ego of mine that never ceases to remind me that all nights have dawns and things are never that bad,
This poem is the one I read when I feel most depressed. And all of a sudden, all my worries are gone. Hope it does the same to you.

Sometimes I lay under the night, gaze upon a star,
Conceal a forgotten past, grieve upon a scar,
Some mistakes were made, not so cruel, not too intense,
But in arrogance and ignorance, that remain too huge to make a sense.

The footprints of those missteps, lay buried under time,
Too distant, too deep, unlikely to be exposed,
But what about the heart that stay frozen under guilt?
Will I recover? Will I forget? Will my shattered heart be rebuilt?

“Grieve no more, oh heart! Don’t let yourself be burnt,
Some mistakes have to be made, some lessons have to be learnt,
Some decisions, some choices are meant to leave you contrite,
Because unless you know what’s wrong, how will you know what’s right?”
