I’ve never really thought about it, well not until now.
I’ve never made the best of things. I never knew how.
I never really went for it. I never took the leap.
I never found the confidence they say lies in the deep.
I never thought I was brave enough or good enough to win
And I never heard a little voice egging me on from within.
I never had the lucky breaks so never knew what could be.
I never had anyone tell me that it must come from inside me.
I never found my momentum, nor even got it started.
I never caught the train as it had already departed.
I never started swimming nor got into the flow
And if I carry on like this, then I guess I’ll never know.
I Never is a short poem by Ms Moem.
