Where Is The Poem I Could Have Written?
WHERE IS THE POEM I COULD HAVE WRITTEN
by Shalom Freedman
Where is the poem I could have written?
The life I could have lived?
The one in which I got it right?
Where is all the time lost
In not doing it the right way?
All the years and years of effort mistaken?
It is not good to know
That one has made a mistake of one’s life
When one could have had it right
Had one only had the wisdom, the courage, the moral strength
To ask and learn from others.
