Change the Past – FW Prompt #32

To change the past
Right what was wrong
To wake up not who I am
But who I might have been
Do I take the chance
Do I lose what I have now
So I can lose what I felt then
What I feel now
I who I am because of what I have done
Maybe there is a reason
Maybe there is a plan
Who am I to meddle
In things I don’t understand
The past is in the past
The future yet to be seen
What I am now
Is who I will be
To change what is
Is to lose a vital part of me

This is from Writing Outside the Lines prompt #32.

“If you could go back and change just one thing about your life, would you? and if you did, would that change make your life better? Or would that change ultimately break your heart? or break the heart of another? would you choose an entirely different path? or would you change just one thing? just one moment – one moment that you always wanted back.”

    1. I have had plenty mistakes. The one horrific one that I would love to change I keep thinking about, but no matter how I spin it I don’t think I could have changed it and all I would have had to do is say something. Either way it still would have happened. What I would be afraid of is changing the past and losing what I have now.
