Poetry – If Only…….?

If only…….. I payed attention to my pain?

Instead I pushed on, numb and cold, carrying my smoldering hate.

If only….. I payed attention, to what I would say?

Instead I lit fires and left others in my wake.

If only….. I would listen, but instead pushed you away?

To trust was to much, instead I chose my fears and hide away.

If only…. I stopped, and chose to be still?

Life may have been different, less lemons. More sweet.

If only I reached out and allowed someone in?

Who knows the difference, the right decision, initiates change.

If only….if only…regrets are the worst thing.
