Revision of My Life

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – July 25:  Unexpected Turn
Things have a way of going off course or changing direction. Either by choice or design.
Today, write your “road not taken” poem.

if I
did not choose
rather stayed the course
of what came next–college
degree, a teacher as Mom
wanted me to be. Then marriage,
babies to raise, grandchildren to give.
For me, would it feel as if I had not lived?

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
