Life Choices from Hindsight: "What if....?", a poem
"What if...?" A Reverie
If I could only be again
the girl who once was Me
with youthful air of innocence
and laugh of gaiety
If I could just retrace my steps
to the place I was back then
and have the chance to alter
the way my life has been
Would I do other than I’ve done,
a wiser pathway go
to realize all ambitions?
Alas! I’ll never know!
(But...,I think not.)
