Crash & Turn

Daily prompt- turning points

I should of walked away
Instead I put the straw
In my nose

It twinkled my senses
And lifted me
Off my toes

I shouldn’t have said goodbye
After drinking
All night

Dad has been gone many years
For me no closure
Anywhere in sight

I should have stayed in college
And left with
Degree in hand

Instead I work a job
Not a career
As planned

Regrets of the past
I have made

All turning points
To who I have
Become today

Rehab, jail, and pain
We’re the results
Of my choices

I never listened to
Those important
Inner voices

Learn from them all
That is what
Is my goal

My life is now diamonds
But for a long while
It was coal.
