If I were to compare the things that I’ve done right
To the things where I’ve failed
Then the failures would come out on top.
But there has been more I’ve attempted when the chances arose
Than those, I ignored and did not.
To look back, to assess, to judge what was I
Is an impossible task to attempt.
As decisions were based on only what I knew
Not prejudiced by future contempt.
To have assessed the future with only that present eye
Demanded wisdom beyond my grasp,
But I tell you truly as I stand here today
It would still be to my heart that I would I clasp.
