Get Rid Of The Advertisements

RIGHT TURN
 

I sometimes tend to wonder
What my life might be like
If I had turned left, not right
When first sampling lifeís delights.

With a mere flick of fate,
Most people I did meet
Would live on some other street
Or, dance to a different beat.

Jobs held, people known,
Entertainment most preferred
Might never have occurred;
Now-favored music never heard.

As simple as the things I buy
Some considered, others not,
May have determined a lot
Of things remembered or forgot.

I call this life comfortable,
With needs seldom unmet.
That left turn hasnít happened, yet,
Nor imposed unknown regret.

Although it unnerves me,
I could be in worn out shoes
Or, denied the right to choose.
I cringe at these many views
Of how life might have been
If, by chance, I had turned leftóback then.
