What Might Have Been

I should have, when I could
I would have, if I’d known

I shouldn't have, but I must
I haven't, when I could have

It shouldn't be, but it is
It isn't, when it should be

It must've been, but it isn't
It would have been, if it is

Shouldn't you have? if you could
Wouldn't you? if you'd known

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

Almost a conundrum I think!

Best wishes,
Eileen

I haven't thought of that Eileen, just wiki-ed it though, I guess it's almost like it as you've said.

Now I have, when I should.:D

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
