If it were to happen. If only things were different. If I hadn’t done this. If I had done that.
If I only I had spoken to her then. If only i knew. If i had studied. If there was no war. If there was only peace.
If I had voiced my opinion. . If I was the prime minister . If I wasn’t scared. If only, I could take more risk. If all meek ones inherited the earth. If women understood men. If only men understood women. If only we knew.
If not for him. . If I get a raise. If I fall. If only it works. If I could do that. If only I could sleep less. If only i had more gaurantees. If there was peace all around. If I live to a 100.If i could bring happiness in someones life.
If only I could eat less. If I could earn more. If I had more friends. If I could pull myself together. If I could bounce back like a tennis ball. If i were perfect.
If I ran the company. If i ran away.
“ if you can keep your head when all men all about you
are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
if you can trust yourself when all men doubt you..”
If i could write like Kipling.
If, they say, is bang in the middle of Life.
If i lived every minute.
If only I could stop !
I just did.
