What Could Be

Be grateful for “what is” and let “what could be” go.

Respect the “now” you’re in and all it does bestow.

“What could be’s” like a thief. It steals away contentment.

It carries off the good and leaves behind resentment.

“What could be’s” like a schemer, its plots and plans contrived.

It tricks you into thinking what’s abundant is deprived.

Be grateful for “what is” and let “what could be” go.

Respect the “now” you’re in and all it does bestow.

“What could be’s” like a cancer you must live with and abide.

It sickens you with anger and will eat you up inside.

“What could be’s” like the devil, shrouded in disguise.

It only stirs up trouble with its fallacies and lies.

Be grateful for “what is” and let “what could be” go.

Respect the “now” you’re in and all it does bestow.
