looking back

if i looked back just now

i know that i would wish i worried less

i know that i would wish i calmed down more

i know that i would prepare less for disaster

and relish in the joy allotted to me

*

for i know happiness is fickle and fleeting

and so i should hold on tight

and become blissfully lost in its arms

when it wishes to embrace me

*

instead i while away my time

thinking:

how do i trust it will return

when i have seen it leaving too soon and so often?

what will i do then?

when will i wholeheartedly believe in it again?
