What Could Have Been?

Looking at my present,

I smile.

I embrace it.

I believe that I am destined to be here.

By fate, by my choices.

To love and be loved by the people around me.

I will always be grateful and thankful.

And my ultimate purpose is to be a good wife and mother.

To strive to be a good person

To live life to the fullest.

To conquer every challenge.

Then my mind,

It took me a step back or two or more

It took me to the past.

The defining moments when I had to make choices, decisions.

It could have led me to different directions

Many other roads to choose

If given the chance, could I have chosen differently?

Will my life be better or maybe I will face greater challenges?

I will never know the answers.

It is useless to even think about it.

It is what it is.

My  mind just wanders and wonders

It is free to imagine.

Dreaming of Boracay

You caught my eye

You were rows behind

It was a short flight to Boracay

I was there to unwind.

We were in the same boat

Stayed in the same island

Beautiful memories afloat

The feel of the warm sand

Parallel journeys

Intertwined fate

Wonders and mysteries

Treasured memories
