  • What If

    what if
    hot dogs were burgers
    and fries were onion rings (I know
    crazy right) but
    what if
    we lived on the moon
    and the earth our sun
    what if we drank air
    and breathe water
    the grass blue
    and the sky green
    what if
    what if we fought hate and wage peace
    would hitler then propagate
    what if
    love was our pledge of allegiance
    and our children religion
    what if
    what if apathy only applied to the universe
    what if
    unemployment was overemployment
    and depression
    a bad dream
    what if
    the electric car was google
    and cloning cure cancer
    would God forgive us
    or would his wrath
    flood
    future temptation
    what if
    fallen stars are dreams
    and eBoLa
    a big fucking distraction
    what if
    reality
    is just
    memories
    would you remember me
    or would I
    die in the shadow of a distant thought
    buried in your mind
    forever deceased
    and if money was dirt
    where would the dead be
    an alternative source of energy
    abortion would provide the gist of that
    and if God was visible
    would we see Him
    or is sodom so enticing
    it blinds you inexplicably
    what if
    we could live beyond tomorrow
    and chase dreams forever
    and the lottery remained the same
    would your luck change
    what if we can do it again
    would you do it the same

    A very intriguing poem, Odanko-Ba. The "what ifs" start off almost lighthearted, then progress to the profound. Thank you for making us think deeply. Monica

    Love, love, love it. I have often thought what if the grass was blue and the sky was green. You took it all to a new and deeper level.

          What if we actually had a second chance - a do over - still in youth and vitality. You're a deep thinker and feeler.

            We are, given second chances my friend. Everyday we awake above ground, is a new start, a new beginning. Second chances. Time to repent. Time to say I'm sorry. Or simply to say I love you. As far as youth and vitality, it will always be a dissipating dream for the aging. But a good soul laughs an eternity.

              That's true. As long as we're alive we are given a second chance -- we need to open ourselves to them instead of mourning what we wanted and didn't get. Somehow the belief that if we give it our all with every fiber of our being, that we will get what we desperately want even feel we deserve focuses our energy on the wrong thing .

                That's right. Focusing our energy on love. The purpose of life.
