Decisons I made back in our past
And plots made throughout the nights
Only had tempoary lasts
Ideas that weren't so bright

I didn't take the time to think
It all rushed to me at once
Quicker than the eye could blink
The result ended as such

Still I went on ahead
Based my life on my emotions
Throughout the ground it quickly spread
As if we were eroisons

At first it was a real great plan
And seemed there was nothing to it
Because i failed to understand
Just why i wanted to do it

But now I've learned to control
The things that I might feel
Not to let emotions grow
Into not such a bright idea

I like this poem. It demonstrates what I have been often pondering on.

I especially like the last two lines.
