Choices, Ruby Brunton

In poetry, Ruby Brunton on July 26, 2011 at 8:49 am

The wind dropped today
Long enough for that clarity to settle
That clarity that settles when you need to see
When you need to see those choices you made
Those choices you made were perhaps
Were perhaps not for the best
The best could have been
No – would have been
To have done it all differently

But then, having said that
And, however
And, on the hand
Some decisions are best unplanned
And if you look at
The scheme of things grand
You would see that actually
In actual fact
In reality
You’re not doing such a bad job
