If I could (3) (A Trilogy)

If I could, rewrite my life
And “Find” that acceptance
We all sometimes seek
And finally realise
That I cannot
Return to yesteryear
No more, than I can
Borrow time
And know, that as the clock
Ticks, then
That moment is gone
Never to return
In a myriad
Of other moments
For no two moments
Can be the same
And that “Change”
Is as inevitable
As “Time”

If I could, reside
Beside that lake
The one I named
“Humility”
And find “Myself”
Where I learn
That love
Is give and take
As is “Life”
And “Drowning”
In the whirlpool
Of past regrets
Has no place
In the future
Bidding “Adieu”
To self-pity
And leaving “remorse”
That tragic emotion
Where it belongs
In its own “Wake”

I would “Awaken”
To a new “Dawn”
A fresh beginning
Rising from the ashes
Of my “Past”
Imitating the”Phoenix”
Replacing all the emotions
Of tragic consequences
With a desire
To see all things
In a differing light
And that “Life”
Has so much more
To offer
If I could
Now live for today
And not for yesterday
If I could
If I could

About this poem:
If I wore jewellery perhaps I could rename this trilogy as The Lord Of The Blings, If I could.

Where I learn
That love
Is give and take
As is “Life”
And “Drowning”
In the whirlpool
Of past regrets

this is a lesson that needs to be learnt
Imitating the ”Phoenix”
Replacing all the emotions
Of tragic consequences
With a desire
To see all things
In a differing light

Hi, trurorob,
After penning such a wonderful If I Could trilogy, filled with so much awareness, one could not help but Now live for today. Enjoyed. Now, enjoy!
