What If

Slowly, slowly, the trees grow

Calmly, calmly the ants gather

Gently, the breeze blows

But my mind is filled with what doesn’t matter


I wish I was in a different world, a different time

When my life played to a soundtrack and

My body danced freely

To the beautiful songs in my head


Fear would be gone

And pain diminished

In this reality of dreams

Where walking took days


But within that time

Entire existences were created

Giving birth to unending ease and

Excitement at life


Eyes shining

Boldly singing


In my new light


So, slowly I can grow

Calmly, I can matter

Gently, I can exist

In this world


Connected to the other

Questioning what’s possible

If I only believe
