No Excuses

I could have been one of the best female indigenous artists in Australia, but I decided to have kids instead.
I could have been a super mum, cooked all these perfect meals; ironed there clothes; played with them; told them stories at bed time, but I just don’t get the time.
I could have been a perfect wife, but I just don’t have the energy.
I could have been the best Director, but the board where lost.
I could have been thin, but I have to much emotional baggage.
I could have been a good student, but the teachers couldn’t work out how to teach me.
I could have been the best teacher, but I am allway in a rush.
I could have been a great friend, but I let life get in the way.
I could have been strongly connected to my culture, but the government took it away.
I could have been a high flying art curator, but someone clipped my wings.
I could have been an art critic, but I really don’t care that much about art.
I could have been a great time manager, but I keep running out of time.
I could have been focused and organised, but my brain just doesn’t work like that.
I could have been a perfect hous keeper just like my mum, but nobody’s perfect.
I could have been a junkie but I gave up the drugs
I could have been a drunk, but quite prossibly still could be. I could have been.
I could have been disempowered and downtrodden, but my spirit is too strong.
I could have been Dead, but I know how to survive.
I could have been all these things, but what’s stopping me from achieving my dreams?
