Je ne regrette rien

How strange this ability of yours
Do we carry only what we need or want?
Is to move on to forget?
Every past fragment wiped clean
Are we mere machines to reset?
Or rather complex histories?
Ah, if only I could wipe it all away
And be given a chance to start all over
How tantalising this prospect
Leaving behind all the hurt, the pain
Even at the sacrifice of all the joys
But if I took it what then?
Having burnt all trace of past being
Might I have forgotten the lessons?
Would forgetting, starting over
Keep me safe or make me wiser?
Maybe I need the memories
Maybe I need to regret

I'd love to know what you think, concrit is especially welcomed on fiction pieces. Thank you.
