If you could travel back in time
Would you 
Try to rectify a million 
Of what you label "mistakes?"
Or would you choose 
To live in the now,
Allowing time to take its toll?
It`s a difficult choice, 
But it must be made.
Me? I would choose now because 
Holds exciting, brand new, 
Unpredictable, unexplainable
Unthought of chances and choices
For the future.
If I stayed in the past,
I believe I would stop breathing
And become so entwined in your arms.
I would allow you to make me your
With no complaints or questions.
I would simply become YOURS.
So instead, I must live in 
A realistic NOW
And hope for an exciting future 
Without you.
