I won’t do it again

Daily Prompt: To Boldly Go…
by Krista on November 27, 2013

An impending new year gives rise to reflection and goal setting. What will your goals for 2014 be? It’s never to early to start thinking about self improvement!

Photographers, artists, poets: show us CONTEMPLATION.


This poem was written as a reflection of the past,
a guide to remember, a key for my goal for the new year.

Often times
I did something
but later wished I should not have done that
then told myself and those who care
that ‘I won’t do it again’.

Like a child
who was naughty
after breaking her favorite toy
begged her mum for a new one
with the promise ‘I won’t do it again’.

Like a teenager
in a puppy love
when he ignored her
sobbed her heart out
reminded herself ‘I won’t do it again’.

Like some parents
with adult children
in denial of parent-child estrangement
compromised one day
hugged each other and said ‘I won’t do it again’.

Like any grandparents
voluntary full time baby sitters
although fully retired
yet has no leisure time
often told themselves, ‘I won’t do it again’.

Is it a regret or is it too late
to put things right
how many more times
do I have to say
‘I won’t do it again’.

i wont do it again
