Would It Be?

Would things be different

If time was reversed

Back to the beginning

The start of where

It all went wrong

Would things be different

If choices were changed

Alternate pathways

Leading to new and

Unfamiliar destinations


Would things be different

If my sense of self

Was based on love

Instead of fear

And distrust

Would things be different

If, like ‘Sliding Doors’

One single moment

A life changing

Opportunity was missed


Would I be different

If history was erased

If I could start anew

A fresh beginning

With all that I know

Would I be different

Or remain the same

The guiding hand

Of fate determining

My final destiny.

    What a deep, well written verse, with wisdom of experience and reflection exuding from each line! Our past does mould us, in more ways than we can fathom.
