Would life be different if…..
I had blue eyes instead of green?
My first food had been carrots rather than peas?
If I grew up on Brahms rather than Beatles
If I had camped instead of flown to Disneyland?
If I had traded cornfields for ocean waves?
Shot guns into the ice rather than skated on it?
Married in a Church rather than a Vegas Casino?
Wrote less and read more?
Traded Sunday School for French School?
Learned to make my bed before adulthood?
Never seen human blood on asphalt?
Or the sideways drenching rain of murder?
Never seen a lightening bug or fried a grasshopper?
Or never traveled far enough to see real poverty?
Would I be me…..
If I didn’t have this moment now,
