A student asked me, “Are you content?”
“More than content!” I assured her.
“I’m happier than I have any right to be.
I have a loving wife, incredible kids,
A happy home, a job I love.
I’m as happy as I could possibly be.”
“But wouldn’t you like to change things?”
I shook my head. “I’m happy with who I am,
With what I’ve done, with what I’ve got.
Any change I might go back in time and make
Threatens to undo everything I know.
I can look back and see stupid mistakes I made,
Things I did wrong, thought wrong, said wrong,
But all of that was me becoming me,
Learning the lessons I would need to know
To become the best me I can be.”
