Life was a series of decisions, good & bad,
& to erase the bad,
would be to erase the good that came from it.
She awakens to the morning glory
of a second chance at Today,
by letting go of Yesterday,
lest it seep into her Tomorrow.
As their culture coarsened,
their morals softened,
& morality was seen as intolerant,
immorality, as compassionate.
Hope floats like unburied treasure,
in the form of the future,
which is fluid & subject to change—
so long as we change with it.
Life was largely happenstance.
We were all one person removed from our destiny—
one marriage proposal away from happiness or heartache.
