    What If

    Do I have the courage to try
    To realize
    What could have been
    If things had gone differently way back when?
    Would I be the same today
    As I've always been?
    If I had done one more good deed,
    Planted one more seed
    When the need
    Showed itself
    to me.
    If I hadn't been so shy,
    If I had tried
    To do the things you asked of me,
    Would things be different today
    If I had done this yesterday?
    But I know that it could never be.
    All these things must remain
    A mystery
    To me.
    But I know now
    That I must try
    to do more of
    What you ask of me,
    To set the captive free,
    To bring a smile to a lonely face,
    To show others your amazing grace.
    It's time for me
    to be
    what you want me
    to be.

    I liked the way you turned this topic into a postive light. The ubiquitous feeling of regret, armed with a vision for change. Nice. I liked your poetic presentation. Thanks

    You keep being you! nice poem

    In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

    Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
