Theory of relativity

Theory of relativity

There was a time I remember
           when I was very young
or if I forget I am reminded
           when I see young children
playing in the school yard
           and there was a time
when I was still young
           and most of my mistakes
were still ahead of me
           those were innocent days
perhaps lived in the bliss
           of ignorance

I now like to think
           that most of my mistakes
are behind me
           but you can never be too sure
so I keep a watchful eye
           just in case—

and none of this is to say
           that some things
have not gone right
           of course they have
and that includes you
           and so far so good
I’m just hoping I don’t
           make another hash
