Given a time machine, would you go back to tell your younger self how to avoid all the terrible mistakes you’d made?


I emerged in familiar rain
The feeling strong, if the details hazy
Like I had done, a dozen
Or maybe more times before

And you are sitting in that chair
Far side of that streaky window
Deep breath to get ready
To render you aware

I believe in what I do
Even though the fires are burning behind me
If I could not fix their pain
I guess I just stayed focused on mine

I know you won’t thank me once I’m gone
I remember how much I felt I’d constrained me
Stick to the path, and keep on plodding on

No mistakes and no surprises
Everything all scripted out

The goal of happiness at the end
If it all blows up, well to hell with them
Time’s what I make
‘til I do it all again
