Track Record

We will not always find ourselves
On the right side of history.
One day, we may look at
Some of the ideas we entertained
Or the things we overlooked
And wish we had chosen different.
Thought different.
Been different.
But we are who we are
And we have come to where we are,
One decision at a time.
The task, then, is to decide
How the rest of the story will go.
Your track record is a gift
Your former self has presented to you.
A gift, not an obligation to perpetuate
The choices you made before.
A gift you may choose to accept
Or deny.
