Free Write Friday! Already

The prompt:

The attempt:

So what if I should have?
I didn’t.
It’s done.

Time is not patient
Life is not forgiving
And both are always running out too soon

I won’t waste my worries on the past
Or at least I’ll say I won’t
And I’ll try but if I don’t, who cares?

What-if’s and should-have’s
Are only pre-requisites for regret
And I don’t want too many of those to look back on

We are all our own hourglass
With tiny grains of sand for seconds
That still fall through even when we aren’t watching

We are not allowed to pick any of those pieces up
And move them back to the side that gives
We can only let them go, watch them settle but not change them

That, that is what life is right?
Decisions; sand grains that are heavy if you could hold them
Actions and thoughts that may be right or wrong but are still ours

Every moment in life is a potential what if
A should have.
A could of.
A maybe.

Every moment in life lived is also an already.

Hey guys! I hope you are all having a fantastic Friday! This is the last FWF of the year, can you believe it!??!

  1. Gosh I really like this one. Worthy of my “refrigerator wisdom” ( I have a habit of posting wise words there for my sons and others to see.) My favorite stanza is:
    We are all our own hourglass
    With tiny grains of sand for seconds
    That still fall through even when we aren’t watching

  2. Wow … such imagery … perfect. This is my favorite:

    Decisions, sand grains that are heavy if you could hold them
    Actions and thoughts that may be right or wrong but are still ours
