Possible Past Futures

June 15, 2016

Why wasn’t I a pilot,

Or a traveller like I thought I would,

Or a studio artist as I had hoped.

I would have seen my masterpieces by now.

What about a travel writer, or a spy,

Or  an interpreter for the United Nations.

Languages intrigued me, Spanish, French,

And oddly enough, German.

Italian intrigues me now.

I did my part in the French Resistance.

That was another life.

Why is my masterwork as yet undone.

Why wasn’t I a bird.

Maybe next time.
