Doors open and bring change

Behind each door is a new day

by Blue Hendrix

Behind The Door Contest Winner 
If we put our regrets behind each door we open,
then nothing will ever change no matter what you're hopin'.
Put all your regrets in the past where they belong.
Then each day and each door will play a new song.

We all have regrets in life.
Some are small and some cut like a knife.
Sometimes one decision can change your fate,
or are we destined now that's a debate.

I do believe you get what you give.
We only have one life to live.
When I was younger my spirit was free.
I did what I wanted and only thought about me.

If I had known then what only life can teach you.
I would have thought each choice all the way through.
I guess some people have to learn things the hard way.
Though it's a tough thing to look back on at the end of the day.

I have so many regrets it makes a long list.
I would have listened to my parents and tried not to resist.
Studied harder and partied less.
Not just gotten by in school but given it my best.

I would have been more faithful to my church and my God.
I Wouldn't have spoiled the child and spared the rod.
I Wouldn't have lived on the edge of Insanity,
or risked my health for the sake of my vanity.

Regrets are bad choices made in past days.
Thats where they belong and where they should stay.
I have forgiven myself and I solemnly vow,
that with each day, and each door there's a better me now.
