Different Life (National Poetry Writing Month 2022 #18)   Leave a comment

In a different life, could I really be me? 
Be free to live the life I wanted to?
The life I wish for?
Or would it even be me?
Living in an alternate reality
Am I just the sum of all that happens to me
The happenstance and coincidence
Or is it destiny that I'll be who I am?
Was I meant to be me, or am I sum of mistakes and double takes,
second guesses and messes someone needs to clean up?
Would I be able to fix my problems, or would they no longer be mine?
I guess I'll never know
But a different me might
