Poems About Regret, Remorse and Sorrow

Regret can make a person feel an unrelenting bitterness like no other emotion. While regret can help a person to avoid repeating a mistake, if left uncontrolled it can wreak havoc on a person. Hours, days, or weeks spent feeling regret for a past mistake is usually counterproductive. It can impede a person from moving on with their life and letting go of the past. So how can someone dealing with regret cope? Many find that reading and writing poems that deal with their feelings allows them to let go once and for all.
