The What's of life

With the hardships of living life
In today's world.
We occupy our minds using up
our energy in the

What ifs
What was
What isn't
What can't be 
What will never be
and What might have been

When we should be taking the space
and time to think of all the positive
and productive things like

What is
What can be
What could be
What might be
and What's possible 
  
If we do this we just might end up with 
a brighter day and the life we've been looking for.
