Listen to these words carefully.
I'd rather be a "Could Be,"
If I couldn't be an "Are."
For a "Could Be" is a "May Be,"
With a chance of reaching par.
I'd rather be a "Has Been,"
Than a "Might Have Been" by far.
For a "Might Have Been" has never been,
But a "Has Been" was once an "Are."
The message here is clear; you choose the direction your life will take. You choose the path down which you will walk. You can lament about a failed past or you can look to a bright future. As you travel home this evening, ask yourself, "Which path will I travel down?"
Good night, gentlemen.
