The Opportunity

It’s easy to look back,
and see missed opportunities,
sometimes from hindsight,
sometimes you know it then,
and beat yourself up,
and rehash it internally,
but the chance is gone,
in the way it was then,
in the time,
and place,
but maybe something like it,
will come again;
but if it does,
it’s not a redo,
it’s a step forward.
