Working with "I didn't"

When you should’ve

and you could’ve,

but were fatally distracted.

You surely would’ve,

certainly good if

train of thought was not impacted.

Later on you wish you had.

You spend a minute being sad.

Then you must move on.

Find a new note for your song.

Using what you have at hand,

instead of the efficient planned.

Discover fresh ideas

that were ‘til now mostly hidden.

All because of mental fuzz,

you are working with “I didn’t.”
