I let it get away on me

I wasn’t watching carefully

And now I’m dealing with the consequences

Of my inattentiveness

And I don’t like it

Don’t like what I allowed to happen

Underneath my nose, as it were

Fallen, really

I’ve fallen from a great height

I undid an accomplishment that I was proud of

Negated all my previous good choices

Set myself back a spell

Best not to linger any longer at the point of regret

I’ll get nowhere but depressed by doing that

I’m putting up the no parking sign

I’ll pick myself up

And start again

This time

With eyes wide open

Still stinging from

But not stuck on

Yesterday’s mistakes
