 Hindsight


We thought we’d done it!

Created the basis for a future

based on peace and love and civil rights.

Even a pandemic couldn’t stop us at Woodstock.

We were unstoppable!

In diverse countries

we saw the rebels become statesmen.

We thought the struggle was over.

And now with hindsight,

I wonder if we would do it again

now we know what happened next.

And if I could go back

with that knowledge,

would I want to?

Would I want 

to face

the person hindsight made me.

And with hindsight,

would I be there for me to find?
