PAD #27 Looking Back

Looking Back

If I could look back
on all the choices I have made,
like clothes hanging in a closet,
what would I choose to try on?
What would I discard?

I think I’d change them all—
choose something more upbeat,
colorful, stylish.
Something with a little more pizazz.
Something smooth and silky.

But then when I grew old
in that alternate world,
I might wish for the worn
comfortable, faded jeans
I’m wearing now.

Ain't it the truth? What suits us now might not be so spiffy down the road, but it's fun to consider anyhow...
