the butterfly effect
if i could rewrite my life’s story
would it change my destiny?
and who i was destined to be
could i have prevented the death of a friend?
of would more loved ones have died?
because i was not by their side
would more kids have been born?
as of now i have no need for santa’s toys
cause i have yet to conceive any girls or boys
would i have been able to cast my vote for the 44th president?
or have passed on and not seen the dream fulfilled
many passed away to young to even conceder writing a will
changing the past could very well alter the present
as i look back at my life and reminisce
i say to myself i could have done that should have done this
i know that i can’t change the past
and trying to change the world has yet to be done
all i can change is my future and hope that my living meant something to someone
one man may not be able to change the world
but one man may be able to plant the seed
that will motivate the reluctant to lead
