Poem: A Victim of Circumstance

If only we could go back in time

and right the wrongs of the past.

How delightful a place

the world would be

without all the pain and the strife.

Unfortunately, this is not the case 

with each moment we try to erase.

We go back to a circumstance

 and wish for another chance.

 As the years pass by,

 we still often wonder why.

 Why did it happen?

 How could I not know?

 The effect on us

 is everlasting,

controllable at best.

No matter how

we try

to deny the pain.

It can be felt

in a tear

from the eye

or from

a glimpse of the past.

At the end

of the day,

we are just

another victim of circumstance.
