but what if it’s all i wanted but it never came true? would you really tell me all my wishing was for nothing? that the well was not as endless as i hoped, and water would never quite fill the pail that i pulled with all my heart for all my heart? would you tell me of my wasted hours staring at the galaxy between the everything else we choose, or could or not know? would you tell me of the easy living it would be if i never asked why or never said yes or never thought to feel what i feel and want what i want and wonder what i wonder about it all?
maybe you would. maybe you wouldn’t. but maybes don’t solve matters of the heart. maybes don’t solve life. because hiding behind all those maybes are all our quiet yeses and nos.
