I Am


I am

the choices I made

every day, from the

moment I knew

I could choose.

I am

the paths I walked

The ones that led me

away from him

took me to you.

I am

the decisions I took.

The white of our wedding,

not the red in which

I would have wed him

I am

the alternative me.

The one I have become,

defined by my choices.

Not the one I would have been

if I had chosen differently
