20/20


Amy and the Surf, Santa Monica California, 1988

Looking back,
Would I change –
The things
Which brought me pain?

To course correct
Early on.
Avoid the pouring rain?

Relive again
Without The cut,
The loss,
The misery.

The pang removed –
Life’s quality,
Would surely,
Be improved!

And be as others? –
Though unaware,
What they their,
Burden bear.

But what of –
The sunny days,
And smiles,
Upon the face?

No, looking back –
I would not change,
A single –
Bless-ed,
Thing.
