What would have happened?

Where would we be?

What if I had said something?

What if I had done something?


Could a marriage have been saved?

Could an education have been gained?

Could dreams have been fulfilled?

Could the same people be completely different?


The mind wanders in the wilderness

Alternative realities captivate

Would’ve been, should’ve been, could’ve been

Hopeless fantasies caught in the past


The past can consume you, burn you up like chaff in the fire

Right here,

right now,


the present

Make the most of it, live it to the full

Before it passes you by and joins the long list of potential regrets.
