Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “if.” Start your post with the word “If.” Enjoy!


I could live by ifs a thousand years
And it would not change a thing
Perhaps in dreams and wishes
The circumstance could alter
And I will find myself in a better place
But when I wake I will still be
Standing in this exact same spot
It only breeds regret and self-condemnation
The over analysis of what has been
The past and all that it holds
Serves no purpose in the forward motion
But is an anchor of misery and drudge
Not holding or grounding firm
But impeding and retarding growth
For there are no mistakes made
A lesson lies in all
And the true result is not the examination
The doubt
Nor the chastisement
But the action that follows
To prove the learning done
