IF I COULD GO BACK

turbo1904

  If I could go back,

Change the past.

  I would slow down,

Not go so fast.

 

  I would pay attention

To the older crowd.

  I get why, they're

Cocky and proud.

 

  I would do better

In school.

  I would play less

Of the fool.

 

  I would adjust,

My attitude.

  I would show

More gratitude.

 

  I would speak

less.

  I would prepare,

For the test.

 

 I would smile

A lot more.

 I no longer would

Keep score.

 

  I would spend more

Time with family.

  I would take better care

of my anatomy.

 

  I would say no can do,

To the drugs.

  I would give

Longer hugs.

 

  I would have no

Expectations.

  I would have quiet

Conversations.

 

  I would be more flexible,

Less bent out of shape.

  I would always have

A plan of escape.

 

  I would cry less,

I would laugh more.

  I would knock on

The closed door.

 

  I would never

Judge another.

  I would be a

Better mother.

 

IF I COULD GO BACK…

    Good words Turbo104. Many feel like that , but when I look back I see life differently as in my poem "As I Look Back".
    Life is wonderful.

        If I could go back, I wouldn't say that. I would focus. I really enjoyed this poem. Thanks.
