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
