WHAT IF: A POEM OF QUESTIONS

What if..
..present and age-long, time-tested truths
are but loopholes and hollow of  falsehoods

What if..
..The present world as we know it
Is but endless and infinitely sprawling orbit

What if..
..There are more to the sexes
Than male and female

What if..
..There are other outer and farther regions
of human settlement untouched by civilization

What if..
..a white smoke heralds
The reign of a black African Pope

What if..
..Today persists and perpetuates itself
Ending the turn of tomorrow; of another day

What if..
..All you have left is not another opportunity or chance
But a few hours to your last breath

What if..
..Christianity will diminish to near extinct
And on its ashes a new religion sprouts

What if..
..Fundamentalism overtakes liberalism
And democracy is dislodged with another ‘cracy

What if..
..The lips that give you kiss of love
Is same that tip you off in betrayal
What if..
..Your worst fear
Is the clearest reality of your life

What if..
..Your damndest dream and greatest fantasy
Unfolds before your very eyes

What if..
..The wind of time unfurls
Your best kept worst secrets

What if..
..It depends on you
To salvage our collective humanity and heritage

What if..
..You were permitted for a day
To be a Nation’s President

What if..
..You have a second chance
To live your life all over again

What if..
..The most loved one
Left, or is lost, mad, blind, or dead

What if..
..Your seemingly firm foundation
is actually standing on a slippery mud

What if..
..Your greatest worry
Dissipates into the air like thin smoke

What if..
..Its your last day
To walk the face of the earth
