Poem: Coulda, Woulda, Should – 12/11/19

 As I sit upon that mountain top
of coulda, woulda, should,
I wonder to myself what would happen
if I actually would with my actions do.
The methods of my madness,
the truth among the omission of lies,
my projected sense of attitude
determined to succeed before
all sets of eyes.

Where the observers sit awaiting,
watching carefully as I traverse the
steps in my life where
I should have been filled
with embarrassment and regret.
The moments where I could have wished
to have wiped clean the visions and those times
but the truth is I don’t want to wipe them away,
they are history,
they are part of what made me
here and who I am today.
Without such experiences
who would have known whether I’d have
travelled down a differing though
similar path and be worse off in my
current version of today?
Best to work with what I know,
And cherish the way my life has turned out
upon this promising open path.
