Wonder of Wonders

Maybe I should have
moved away, anyway.
Maybe I should have
married him, after all.

Maybe if I had started
saying no, long ago,
I wouldn’t find myself
in such a mess again.

A person can
get away with
the wrong thing
for a long time.

Until everything goes
wrong all at once
and you’re left
wondering what you’ve
done with your life.

I mean, what would
have happened if
I’d moved away,
anyway?

What would life
be like if I had
married him,
after all?

Insanely busy weekend so cleaning out some old stuff. And find myself standing here with a very distinctive “Now what?” feeling.

Hopefully I’ll have the courage to choose for myself from now on.
