If I Knew - Poem by Randy McClave

If I knew then, what I know now
Maybe I wouldn't be using a plow,
More books I would have read
If I was only thinking about 'now' in my head.
I would have been a rich man with stocks
Now, I can't even afford to buy new socks,
If there was just someway or even somehow
If I just knew then, what I know now.

If I knew then, what I know now
I would not had taken that wedding vow,
I would still be a single man as I am today
But, with no ex's or alimony to pay.
I think back of money and the energy I wasted
Being rich and independent I would have tasted,
If I just could anyway or anyhow
If I just knew then, what I know now.

If I knew then, what I know now
When I think I would with a raised eyebrow,
I would smoke from a pipe and not chew tobacco
And money from banks would I ever need to borrow.
I would live in a mansion with many fine women
And everywhere I wanted to travel, I would have already been,
I would learn to say that I am no better than you or thou
If I just only knew then, what I know now.

If I knew then, what I know now
Maybe to me people would curtsy and bow,
In life I would had known what road or path to take
I would have made no errors or a single mistake.
Being rich and satisfied I would finally be
And I would be smarted than anyone with my college degree,
If destiny would commit and God would just allow
If I just knew then, what I know now.
