opportunity cost - in the making

This moment could have been a billion other moments
some richer, some merrier, some smoother
and some rougher
but this moment carries the opportunity cost
of a billion other moments
and that weighs on it

I don't want to be constrained
Not by my thoughts
not by aims,
or by the mirage of success
and the ways of life

I don't want to be constrained
by the riches in future or
fame or fortune
or status or security

not by the virtues of the rich
or the styles of the famous
or the patterns of decisions
or the ways of the world
