Should’ve Been

I should’ve gone farther.

I should’ve worked harder.

Should’ve been married.

Should’ve had kids.

Should’ve moved out.

Should’ve found a career.

I should’ve done…

something.

My life should’ve started by now.

When I look around

I seem to be the only

standing still

frozen

on a climb that’s all uphill.

If I dared to look back,

I’d see how far I’ve come.

First, I’ll release the shackles

of who I should’ve been.

 

Prompt: Should’ve
