In hindsight

It is advisable to listen to good advice
But who knows what that is?
Unless assessed in hindsight
By which time, we are already living with the outcome of our choices

It is memorable to read a good book
But who knows what that is?
Unless assessed in hindsight
By which time, we have traded in a limited commodity

It is pleasurable to listen to good music
But who knows what that is?
Unless assessed in hindsight
By which time, we have internalized the new beat

It is enviable to win a jackpot
But who knows what that is?
Unless assessed in hindsight
By which time, we have staked a part of our means
