‪ If I ever get to regret

I will regret the day I regretted

Eating the food that made me purge

My stomach needed that much cleansing

.

If I ever get to regret

I will regret the day I regretted

Being duped of about twenty thousand naira

That stuff taught me more street-sense

Than the streets of Oshodi

.

If I ever get to regret

I will regret the day I regretted

Leaving my $18/hr for a $13/hr job

That stuff taught me

Opportunity cost of choice,

The value of peace-of-mind,

And more freedom than the Whitehouse

.

If I ever get to regret

I will regret the day I regretted

Not wearing winter jacket that got me almost Frozen

A lesson only few profs in North Pole understand

.

If I ever get to regret

I will regret the day I regretted

Jumping into the river because others

Were jumping and I almost got drown

That stuff taught me how to be me,

The Faithfulness of GOD than Sunday sermon

Bandwagon effects better than Econ prof,

And one new way to die so I live forever.

.

If I ever get to regret

I will regret that I regretted

Telling the girl I love

That I love her for she rejected.

That stuff taught me

The importance of timing,

And diction I didn’t learn from Act1110

.

Therefore,

If I ever get to regret anything

I have said, written or done in my life

I will regret the fact that

I am regretting something

I have said, written or done

Because everything

I have said, written or done

Work together to get me where I am today.
