A Thousand Directions
Life is a thicket of choices
a thousand roads leading towards
and directing away
from where I stand
a thousand books and road signs
pointing, but for life there is no map
the exact distance between
where I am and that place I could have been
is a jagged branch I could never truly climb
for the winds of regret only sway us
and serve to waste our time.

Each day is an opportunity to travel back into tomorrow's past and change it.
