Why

If only, I had made different choices in life; and followed other paths, would my journey been better? Would there be less pain and sorrow, oh, I often wonder about if only; I had done this or that- said something, or not said something, would it matter ? Maybe, I would not have married so young; not have had a dead baby, why did I not see that my dad was sick. I could of stopped working to care for my mom. not be the one to turn off her live support; someone else could have, why was I the only one with courage? Sometimes, I wonder why people turn away from me; to break my heart, what was my flaw, what did I do? I have come to the conclusion, that sometimes people come to teach us; they were never meant to stay, yet, the lesson is often hard to understand. _______________________________ August 4, 2020 Poetry/Verse/Why Copyright Protected, ID 20-1275-473-03 All Rights Reserved,2020, Constance La France Written for the contest, If Only, Maybe, Sometimes sponsor, Silent One Third Place

You point deep questions that most of us have faced at some point of our lives and your wisdom answers them in the end. May be it is to teach us something. Congratulations on your win Constance :)

Why indeed, Constance, such worthy questions, and i think you may have answered them all, when one reads your wonderful poetry, Why would we want you any different to what you already are?
