Hindsight is like foresight without a future.
Even what I have done has not always
Predicted what will be.
Some will never be in hindsight…
In hindsight, foresight requires wisdom
Which is not always hindsight
But I live each day building on what was
Sometimes knowing what will be because,
Of what was,
but not always.
Time gives reasonable direction
And bears a single view.
Yet humans live without direction
As Christians live without fate.
In hindsight I know I have loved
I have clenched my heart in fury
of determination to require love.
Many paths of foresight have lifetimes
I will not live except one…
And in striving.
And in foolishness.
In requisite step
Fate climbs aboard my soul
attempting to explain what I don’t believe,
And I won’t.
I stand, jaws clenched,
Feet firmly planted from shoulder to shoulder
I stand…I STAND
I stand because my heart knows
That He knows her by His plan
And for me, I knew that
From the very first day my hands opened
And my heart opened with them.
That love has only but one lifetime
And mine is not yet over.
If I never see change again
I do have a lifetime;
…mine is not yet over.
