Neither Boon Nor Bane Was In Vain

by Zachary A. Horn

Possibilities
fall away
with time
and age.

Condensing
day by
day.

Paths
not taken
forsaken
or mistaken.

Set the course
and limit
choice.

Will not
want not
can not
shall not.

Cease
to cause
remorse.

I will not
have it all
nor do I
want it.

Most of it
never belonged
to me anyway.

I got what I needed
when I needed it
neither boon nor bane
was in vain.
