What If?

What if we could fly away?
Swim among the stars,
Feel the warmth of other suns - Suns so near and yet so far.
What if we could touch the sky?
Speak the language of the trees?
Hear the branches whisper words
As they flutter in the breeze..

What if we could fight a storm?
Bellow back its angry cry,
mite the mighty lightening bolts -Strike them from the sky?

What if we could be the forest?
Harmony the robin's song?
Keep in all the good and right?
Banish everything evil and wrong?

What if we could fly away?
Embrace the starry sky?
Swim in waters of other seas?
.........what if we could fly?


When all about you is black with gloom,
And all you feel is pending doom.
When your bones are racked with grim despair -When every breath is a gasp for air.
Keep on going, though you need to grope,
For around the bend is a ray of hope.

A ray of hope is perhaps all that's left,
As your will to live has been bereft.
You've lost it all, it's just no use!
You can end it all, you need no excuse.
But throw away that piece of rope,
And give yourself a chance of hope

Just give yourself another day,
Brushing aside what your thoughts may say.
This is your life and you can make a new start,
By ignoring the brain - just follow the heart.
Taking baby steps in order to cope,
And minute by minute you'll build on your hope.

Build on your hope....one day at a time,
Though the road be steep and hard to climb.
The hurts of the past - they should be dead.
The fears of the future are all in your head.
Just live in the present and refuse to mope
Your life will sparkle for you're living in hope
