How quick are we to fantasize
how life might be,
if only what we wished for
If life were different, I would be successful.
If life were different, I would be recognized.
If life were different, I would be loved
the way I want to be loved.
If life were different.
What might be,
if we spent the time,
Instead of wishing,
Instead of fantasizing,
Instead of dreaming,
How would life look,
if we made the changes that need making?
if we attended to the things we’ve been avoiding?
if we righted the wrongs that need righting?
What if, instead of
we acted on our wildest imaginations
and let them change us?
That would change everything.
