“What if’s?”

What if? Two words, a question mark 

Seems, looks, like a simple question 

Don’t be fooled 

Those two words

That question mark 

Are anything but… 

They are

It is 

One of the most powerful, questions, one could ask 

It can strike fear in your heart 

Stop you dead in your tracks 

Mind racing

Heart pounding 

Palms damp 

Deer in the headlights 
You, are now the deer

The headlights, have become all the possible answers… 

to that one question 

That uncertainty 

Regret 

Longing

Uneasy

Unsure…

Feeling you now have

All those

Growing inside you 

All because you dared… 

you dared to ask 

You dared to live by 
…”what if?”
-B.
