The Poems I Did Not Write/Like The Lives I Did Not Live - Poem by Shalom Freedman

THE POEMS I DID NOT WRITE/LIKE THE LIVES I DID NOT LIVE

The poemS I did not write
Like the lives I did not live
Are not the major poems the greatest poems
They not even a poems
As the lives I did not live
Are not even lives-

Regret is always possible
And all our failures call us to it
But life like poetry is what is with us now-

The poem I am writing
Is more than any poem I will ever not write-

However this moment and this poem are
They are here
As real forever
As now.
