Poem by Karlan Lokey Downing

A Step Back In Time

Young and strong,
ready to take on my world,
with that complete certainty of youth,
and not questioning the rightness of the journey.... I set out to conquer my world

Choices made- and choices missed,
make me wonder what if........
paths traveled and paths not chosen,
and I am here today, where my past has led me.

But still the what ifs hover.....
and I am bound to question
where and what would other choices and different paths have brought about.

None the less, here I am today.
Happy in my skin and satisfied with where my life had brought me. .....
but still, in the night as I contemplate my life,
there creep in softly the thoughts. ... what if.
