Not Into The 'What If/Could Be' Business - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Leave what 'is' to be...
As it is!

That which isn't?
Why is that discussed...
If it has not touched upon us?

You can fill 'your' head up with that 'stuff'.
But I am not into the 'what if/could be' business!

    Wow. I'd call this braching out. And I'd have to agree, got to much of the what is filling up life, no time for ifs. Cause like my daddy always said, if a frog had wings it would not bump it's ass everytime it jumps! ! Love Ya - Sandra (Report)Reply
