When I was a child I would try and climb up my grandmothers grandfather clock.
It was old, as was everything in her house, as was she.
It all went together, I thought. when you're young your possestions are young too, and as you age so do they.
Simple, pure, child logic.
And, I would try and climb that clock and reach towards its face to touch its hands.
I thought, in my pure, simple, mind, if I turned them backwards then I could change the past.
Remember to pick up my toys so I didn't get in trouble, watch a television show that I missed, etc.
The first time I did it, and everytime I did it, it didn't work.
But, that did not discourage me, I tried it every so often.
(Until, my mother caught me and busted my tail.)
I always wanted a do-over, I still do.
Theres always something I wish I said, or that I did differently. 
I'm like that though, I regret everything that doesn't turn out 100% in my favor.
And I always have wished, even with my more developed brain, that I could turn back the clocks arm and bring back what time has taken away from me.
