What Ifs and Buts – Written Thursday 13th March 1997 (Aged 22)

What Ifs and Buts

things change in a day
and suddenly looking at things
becomes a little easier
it changes everything or nothing
every little action you make
this is not misplaced arrogance
just a sense of perception and awareness
perhaps even a little responsibility
who goes to who?
and who is busting fantasy
on a slip shod reality
converging on two lines
suddenly meeting after running parallel
things change in a day
actions and situations
happen to people all the time
and it is all part of the scene
or is it part of a scheme
run by a better being
if they are truly out there
let us hope that they are all seeing
i start to notice
it is all what ifs and buts
what if i had done this…
and, but, what about this…
if only i had done it…
it is all what ifs and buts
