Unwanted Reflection

Unwanted Reflection

A Poem by Lox
"

My friends are graduating, I'll be a little bit late but they're going now. They're leaving and I only have myself to blame. I wish I had been able to have gone with them.

"
The people around me are finished
They stand up, I sit still
They're going for the door slowly
I look their way and I appeal

''Please don't leave me'' I whisper
My voice wavers, unable to let them hear
My throat threatens to tremble
Alas no sound appears

Only few remain sitting with me
All struck with the same guilt
The same regrets we all share
We mourn our loss tears spilt

Everyone knew who to blame
For a blunder this profound
Cast the guilty in the mirror
And behold ourselves renowed

Lol! :) Well that's not all bad then.
We alll make mistakes. Oh my goodness I have made many. Face up to it and tell yourself you can do better. Look in the mirror and say it with conviction. This is a temporary blip, no more than that. We learn by our mistakes. Relatable write. Good luck.
