​Am I truly happy? 

Could I have been happier?

Did I make the right choice last year?

If I had taken a different route, would I have less fear?

Does happiness have a pinnacle?

Or will tomorrow supply me more?

If my choices had been different,would I have a better outcome?

If I could rewind would I climb a different mountain?
Take a deep breath and stop the angst

I cannot obssess about what might have been

Am I content in the now?

I am working on that, with all my know how

I have to adapt, learn to change

Look to the future to rearrange

The past is the past it will help me to learn

But if I obsess, I won’t get a return
I can day dream, the changes my life would have

But I will never know,  as its a life I never lived

Am I truly happy?

Is my life satisfactory?

If not I must strive

New choices to derive

 I can move into the future

Finding happiness in the now, make life work and  not be a consumer
