birds in a barrel's mission is to release creative nonfiction into the wild.

40 Days & 40 Writes is its first project.

If Only...

I have thought about it.

Trust me, I have.

If only I had stayed at Fox Broadcasting, I'd be a ______ by now, earning $_____ by now.

If only I had stayed at Howard University and didn't move back home, I'd probably be married by now, or in ______ industry by now and have ____ amount of kids.

If only I had left early that day. Or, had went down such-and-such street...

I can't do this anymore. I refuse.

This way of thinking doesn't serve me. I won't allow myself to entertain these thoughts because their sole purpose is to rile me up and make me ponder the unknown that should truly remain there, unknown.

Me, Men, Mental.
