The Inevitability of it All

I didn’t

Know better

And if I had

I wouldn’t have

Done anything

Differently,

But 

Maybe

I would’ve been

Prepared

Better

For where I am now-

Trying 

To figure out

Why

And where

And how

And if.

I might have

Gotten here

Feeling

Less surprised

Or hurt,

Or angry,

Or confused.

Maybe

I would’ve

Had more courage

To try

To be

Less afraid

Of loss.

I doubt that

Knowing

The possible outcome

Would’ve stopped me,

And I hope

That living 

The inevitability of it all

Will not

Kill me

Or my willingness

To love.
