The Next Time



The next time, I’ll say ‘hi’ when that moment first arises
The next time, I’ll cross the street before the trouble starts
The next time, I won’t put the money on that horse that lost me everything
The next time, I’ll go with whom I love rather than who you said I should
The next time, I will tell you that I’m unhappy and not just smile through gritted teeth
The next time, I’ll live the way I want to and not because I am scared
The next time, I won’t let them hit me, or call me names
The next time, I will not wait so long
The next time, I’ll take that chance
The next time, I will not throw away friends and money like that
The next time, I’ll make sure they’re properly dead
The next time, I’ll take my share as well
The next time, I will not drink as much
The next time, I will not hit you, I promise
The next time, I’ll be the one to stay on the path and make you move
The next time, I’ll spend more time talking and listening
The next time, I’ll be far gentler on myself and my life
The next time, I’ll probably do it all again, just like the last time.
