The "Ifs" and the "Buts"


Here for the Journey
The Ifs and the Buts

I’ve been thinking about all the “Ifs” and the “Buts”
And the “What ifs” and “Whys” and its driving me nuts
When I think where I’d be if I’d done “This” or “That”
Maybe flying much higher than where I’m now at

Then enter “Instead”and “Alternative choices”
To bring up some new and some thought-jerking voices
Even with "Hind-sight" I have to concede
There’s no way to know what I might have achieved

Now onto the stage enters “Could have done worse”
A canny young player but p’raps somewhat terse
He looks at the picture before him and says
“You’ve not done too bad Girl in so many ways”

So as I keep pondering I see the scene change

And once again I am alone on the stage
Blank canvas before me more choices, new things
I see “New opportunities” arrive from the wings

He arrives with a flourish and I wonder “What now?”
As he stands before me now taking a bow
And I wonder if I should go forward, embrace
Who knows what new challenges I could now face
