Every Tiny Little Thing

Life sure seems long and perilous 
Yet, so quick is the journey 
Decisions upon decisions, about 
Every...Tiny... Little...Thing!
Meaningless are most, they really are...Or 
Were they?
Sometime.  Somewhere.  Somehow.  
Every...Tiny...Little...Thing 
Counts for something, now!
***
It truly is an art!  Moving on from the past 
Letting go of little things, not wondering "if" I had  
Would my life be better somehow?
If now?  
Or worse...
If then?  
Would I go back and do it all over again?!
No way!  Not a chance! 
I'll take my credit, for time served!
With the experiences intact, the lessons I've learned
My lifetime of memories, well-preserved
To continue on this unknown path
Hopefully...Undisturbed
Because maybe, if I changed one...Tiny...Little...Thing
A time, a place...A moment 
I would be lost somehow, I would lose something...
An integral part of me, by creating a different path
Putting me on a road I might soon regret...And forget
Every...Tiny...Little...Thing 
I could've had



Sometimes; Tiny little things...Take up the most room, in your heart.

    Tiny little things do not result in much weight on your shoulders. I just set goals and write poems as they come to me which is usually early in the morning. Your poem appeared on my screen so just read it. Jim Horn
