U is for Undo

If life had an ‘undo’ button
Things would be so easy to fix
I’d never have to worry about making a mistake
I’d just go back and give it a nix

If life had an ‘undo’ button
I could live free of regret
Wrong choices, bad decisions, so easily reversed
Easy-peasy, no sweat.

If life had an ‘undo’ button
I’d never have to fear
Of saying the wrong thing or making an error
I’d always be in the clear.

If life had an ‘undo’ button
Be honest, would you use it?
They say experience is the best teacher
If you undo something, don’t you lose it?

If life had an ‘undo’ button
Let’s be honest, things would be dull
No mistakes, no consequences, no redemption arcs
No introspection, nothing to mull.

If life had an ‘undo’ button
There would be no point to life
An error-free existence seems tempting, indeed
But character is born out of strife.

I don’t want an ‘undo’ button
I don’t want to be all-assuming
There is no such thing as a perfect life
To err is to be human.
