Have you ever woken up in the morning, feeling like you've made a huge mistake but there's no going back?
Welcome to my life.
One of the worst things about getting old is how regrets pile up. When I was 25, the world was all in the future, what did the present matter but to be a place for me to run wild? No regrets, no worries, just flow in the Now, tomorrow will take care of itself..
..except that it didn't. The Piper waited, because he will always be paid, in blood for that matter.
The memories are nightmares now, the things I have done an Albatross on my neck, the bright flames of Life now dark ashes waiting for me. And while there are things I might, with immense hardship, fix.. there are places that, with all my power, I cannot reach. I have done things that I cannot repair, lost people I can never see again.
Some things, my friends, are eternal. Be careful with your decisions, they will define you.
