If

If I could heal
This rift, this damage
I would do so

I am no healer
Nor prophet I
Nor guide to light the path

I’m just a smile
That led the innocent
To their dark side

I’m just the voice
That sought to sing glory
But played a dirge

If I could forgive
Do so entirely
Take it all upon me

I yet would try
To do one good
Before I die

    “If” 2 simple letters that hold such promise, hope and desire. I have a similar story written a few months back about “If.” Love yours here.

    I’ll settle for a box of chocolates and a packet of ciggies.

  3. Strange think about “IF” is that it bears different desires for everyone. Loved it.
    ( Wish of an unborn)
    ” If I could see the world,,
    I would ask for mercy

    A place peaceful and quiet
    and serene history

    No killing for race and gender
    no discrimination based on creed

    A place where we live together
    share a bond of harmony

    let me breathe the same air
    and see the same world as you see”
