A poem based on an idea that I've been trying to elaborate on for a few months. I FINALLY found a way to write it.

If I could lead another life
I'd live set against the sea
So the wrong-wrought world
Would be cleansed for me.
Then to reconsider that,
So as to think again,
I'd sleep the lifeless night
Then leave where I had been.
To lead another life,
I'd find a city grand;
To live among the better
Than to live among the sand.

If I could lead another life
I'd deflect the mark of shame
And have gratitude in that
I'd kept the lion tame.
For in the city streets
There lies a quaint grandeur,
And of the people's status,
Each one is all to sure.
To lead another life,
I'd keep my distance fair
And until I find the light again,
I'd keep everyone aware.

If I could lead another life

I'd speak shameful of the last,
For far too much had happened
For me not to dwell in the past.
I would think it like a dream,
A dream and nothing more,
For all that is not real
Sits quite dead behind a door.
To lead another life
I'd forget what wrong I'd done;
I'd leave no mistake the same
And only then will I have won.

If I could lead another life,
I'd split it right un two.
Part one would be for bleeding
And part two I'd spend with you.
For everything beforehand
Was set up for only I;
I had nothing else to say, my dear,
Until the day I'd die.
To lead another life
I'd rethink when we were one;
I'd live a day in silence
And the next I'd speak in none.

If I could lead another life
I'd have a chance to reprehend.
At first behind the shadows;
Now the world again.
I know not where I'm headed
Though I know where I began.
But perhaps this newcome burden
Is too much for just one man.
So I'm speaking for the rest of us,
Whose only chance was then.
I say these words with confidence:
Look back where you have been.

If I could lead this life again,
I would, just to impress.
But without the times to trouble with,
I'd live a great deal less.
