Looking Back

Do you ever look

back and think

of what might

have been

if only you would

have had the courage

to follow your dream.

Where you might

have ended up

nobody knows

whether it all

could have fallen

into place like

a line of dominoes.

A different world

for you to inhabit

where you didn’t spend

your time hiding

like a scared rabbit.

You might have been

confident and assured,

walking with your

head held high,

instead of sitting

here alone waiting to cry.

Regret is such

a dangerous feeling,

when it can destroy

a future that

should be appealing.
