Whatever I have done 
I might have done worse, and might have done better.
Whatever I have chosen 
I might have chosen worse, and might have chosen better.

Whatever I have tried to say, 
I might have said worse, and might have said better.
Whatever I might be, 
I might have been worse, and might have been better.

But maybe judgement at all isn’t necessary
For better or worse, perhaps everything 
Is always all it can be
Including me.

Thanks Stephen for commenting.

I think this poem is pretty basic in how it poetically presents the concepts but meditatively it was just how it needed to be.

I quite like how I made use of the words better and worse in a new way in the final verse that I added today, I think it improves the poem a bit and presents a different perspective too but some might think it makes it worse since it has a different rhythm and flow than the other verses.

A very interesting poem which makes one think and certainly not rush to judgement.

Thank you JD. Oddly enough it is both new and old. The first two verses are a couple of years old, but I spruced it up a bit for posting so the final verse was added today.
