From the translator’s journal ~Regret~

A regret that
I wish I could have done that, and
a regret that
I shouldn’t have done that.

What a difference
between these two regrets!

I thought it was more human
to regret for having done something
while I was young.

But now that I am getting older,
I often make a decision not to do.

Is it because of poor energy,
or of a little wisdom?

Even after much consideration,
not a good decision comes these days.

Which regret will I feel from now on?
