I just ate an entire box of Lucky Charms cereal and I swear to god I can see into the future. ~Kurt Hummel

If second chances
Could be purchased at a store
I'd be first in line.

I'd buy a ticket
Back to when it would have mattered
And tell you the truth.

This Haiku is mostly about regretting not seizing the moment when the chance presented itself. No day but today.
