Could have been more than what I am
Should have been more
Wasting time is where I excel
Never enough, never enough, still here.
Could have conquered more than what I have
Should have worked harder
Procrastinating is what I do
Always almost there, almost there, still not finished.
Could have cared more for what I did
Should have studied better
Wishing is worrying about what I can’t
Sometimes arriving, finally arriving, getting close to done.
Could have shared more for what little is me
Should have stood stronger
Learning is doing and changing what I can
Always striving, always striving, working now, it’s working now.
Not with much but rich in love believing in finding a new fit will come and
brings a lightness to the heart that fills the soul and begins a fire
burns in hunger and asserts desire.
