Reset Button

If there was a reset button
In this life,
Where we get to
Restart each time we feel
We have failed,
Or gotten hurt
And wanted to forget,
Would we use it?

Would we really want to
Forget what made us
Forget what made
Us who we are,
Despite the tremendous
Pain we may feel?

But what if we pressed reset,
And yet,
Continued to make
The same mistakes
Over and over again,
Because once we reset,
There is no memory
Of what had occurred before?

Would there be a real reason
To reset what had happened?
Wouldn’t the wiser option be
To learn and move on?
Why then, do we as humans
Wish to go back to the past
And fix past mistakes?
