Beyond repair

There are some things
that can never be mended;
even as much as you try,
the result remains upended.

And I’ve learned it is better
to let sleeping dogs lay
than to stick around waiting
for the needle to sway.

There’s a balance to life
that just can’t be amended,
but sometimes these truths
are miscomprehended.

So I’m doing my best
to remember all these things
and trying not to fret
over things I cannot change.

  1. Indeed!
    There are certain things, events in life, which happens to damage the smooth flow in peaceful life.
    I have experienced such and a Big one, a blow.
    However I could survive by the grace of God.
    Your post is excellent ☺️
    It reminded me of my life event, beyond repair…. The big betrayal…..
    Best regards 🙏🙏

    1. Thank you, Arun. Oh the tragedies of life… they are unfortunately never ending. Thankfully we have the good to balance everything out. 💛


  2. I couldn’t agree more. Some things are just beyond repair and I’m dealing with some issues right now. My quote for this new year is ‘I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change. I’m changing the things I cannot accept.’
