Why Did I Ponder On This As A Little Boy?

What do you do when you've done all you can and still can't make someone content?
You try harder. Or something. 

I mean how hard is to make people happy? 
I think I can answer that. Get a hold of a time machine.
This is a moment of absolute genius. Isaac Asimov would be proud.
Just go back in the godforsaken past and right your wrongs. Make better decisions, lower causalities. 

But no, even that won't do any good. Because the gist of the matter is that in your dimension you have already fucked up so even if you would go back and do things differently you would just enter a different dimension. 

So basically, you're fucked for eternity. Even if you somehow manage to find yourself a time machine and reverse shit, you're still pretty much fucked.   

Humans err right? Then why are we given hell about deeds committed in the past? 
Mistakes you've learnt from, having sworn to never repeat the same or something similar. 

But no, the promise to be good doesn't help. 
Nor does doing everything you can to keep the bridge intact that connects the both of you.
Little by little, every passing day.. you observe strains on the bridge. Tiny cracks that don't really threaten the foundations but then again who likes a scratch on their shiny car.
You touch up the scratches and do your best to repair what's wrong but the repairs keep on breaking, all your efforts are temporary. 

You don't remember a time when everything was sunny, everything was simple.
You don't remember a time when you were both content, satisfied.
Complications arise, your past deeds deemed unlawful, illegal.
But then you smile, remember there's low and then there's high tide.

Awesome and useful...the first section! I agree there is no undoing anything in life, no matter how many promises made later (in good faith)...

Life is tough...and errors in the past only make it much more tougher!

@Siddhartha Joshi - Useful really?

Logically speaking errors in the past should just make it easier for you to not make the same mistakes.

The biggest idiot is someone who goes out and makes the same mistakes again.

So the moral of the story is - go out, make some new mistakes.

Or something.

We're going somewhere. Or something.

@bubba - Elaborate bubba ji.

Oh I like that. Normally one would take the fistful cryptic-ness up their ass and rejoice in all the glory.
you know, goats were never good enough to..ponder over things in life. Thusly, we do. Don't you think it's kind of pathetic being homo sapiens? I miss days of being a goat or a fish.

@bubba - I like the fistful of crypti-ness, but only when it comes out of my end.

It is a tragic comedy, this life as a homo sapien. But some scientists argue that it should be 'pan sapien'. Bah

I don't remember my prior incarnations.
