What If?

my mind's yell
and sooth my heart's speech,
before reasoning is valid
and simplistic normalcy overturns these weak hands,
loosing chance of knowing, being stuck with horrible repetitive thoughts of: what if?

    Ps. Smile, I believe that I posed my comment within the present tenses view; rather amid hindsights perspective; although, it is from the past wherein we learn towards the paths of our decisions hopefully of this day....Smile, "You Have Such A Beautiful Soul Dear!":) ~ On we go....

    Smile ~ Within our lives we are often faced with the what ifs it somehow seems and, I believe that first one must weigh the importance of the matter which is at hand and then decide, how will it effect my heart, my life or my soul? Smile, You are the only one whom can decide for, You are the only one who truly knows You; albeit, there are other factors to consider perhaps, while in doing so...."Excellent Reflective Poem" ~ "My Love As Always to You," John!:) ~

    Hi Jessica :) Aack , I could so relate-- I think "What if?" is one of the most frustrating questions there is!! Wonderful write--I sure got intrigued with the form that you used as well-- btw there's an extra "o" in your "losing" hope this helps :)

    Excellent write, the only way to rid ourselves of the what if, is to plunge forward and try.
