NOW I have a better understanding of why things ARE
Instead of what I hoped them to be.
Sometimes we want what we want But I just want to be a loving family.
Nobody is to blame
And we can’t change the past
But what we CAN do now Is to walk in love
and make that last.
Maybe everything didn’t go right
In fact, to us, a lot went wrong
But what’s the point of singing
The “I wish it was different” song?
If things could have been different
I’m sure they would have been
But things were what they were
And all we can do now is keep livin.
Would I change the past, if I could?
My answer would be “Yes”
But I can’t, so I won’t fret
And I won’t live my life full of stress.
Because, if the truth be told
things could have been even worse.
Even though you may feel like
On your life there was a curse.
While you’re complaining about the past
Think on the things that were good.
Because things would have been different
Yes, Different if it could.
(A poem by T. J. Theresa Jeanette Scott 4-11-15)
