choicesA Poem by dovetailer
We always rue missing the opportunities we would have loved... what if we haven't...yet
I look upon my life, critically
muse on where different choices
might have brought me...
had I made them
I wonder what I would be today
if I had gone to school as planned
and chosen the world to see...
made it my oyster
would I value success above all else?
have the bright sheen of success
instead of the matte finish of
what friends would surround me?
would they be tried and true
or sycophants and toadies
what vocation would I pursue?
How did we know what we
wanted to be when we grew up?
did I choose well?
we have so few chances to get it right
there are few do-overs in life...
what if I was meant for greater things
and missed it
I might have been a writer of poetry
or an accomplished musician
it might have been I who discovered
the Post- It Note
o, ...what a knicker-twister this is
what if life is not a series of random
events at all, but choreographed...
we were meant to be
what if all roads actually "lead to Rome"?
that no matter what choices made
we would have found ourselves
right here at this moment
what if we were meant to love?
perhaps the fulfillment of our dreams
lies beyond a door ahead of us and
we haven't missed it at all
