The Story Of My Life

what if

if only

the story of my life

what if this

and what if that

if only i'd worn a different hat

a fork in the road

i chose the wrong path

and now i cant find my way back

the story of my life

just as i have written

not  a brave lion

just a frightened kitten

what if this and what if that

and so this is where i'm at

the story of my life

is not a happy one

but i'll keep on writting

the story isnt done

    Lori, your poetry & your comments are charming. I can't go back after making a poor choice (consequences), but I can learn from the past and let those lessons guide me now. I give myself a break and let my downtrodden inner soul smile a bit more. There's nothing wrong with learning through experience. On a second note, there are many decent guys out there who are not superstars. There are also enticing gamers who are losers in disguise. Your poetry and comments reflect a bright future.
