Until you begin to break it down
Into the events,
The moments of each day.
In a single second
So much beauty and destruction
Occurs all around the earth.
A child can be born
Or a family
Yes, a life seems long
Until you see the regrets and the joys.
Some say that peering into the past
Leads you to a view of our future,
But to me, that only holds true
If we do not learn from our mistakes.
What if we could go back
And prevent events from taking place?
What if we could simply learn what we did wrong
And then be given the chance to fix it, to undo the evil?
So much could be accomplished,
So much hope restored.
However, everything, every idea,
Must have both beneficial and destructive potential.
What if someone was able to go back in time
And undo the goodness?
