WHAT IF …
in a sea of unknown moments is
a noble act of great courage.
Speak and the unprotected thought is exposed.
Move and the vulnerability of risk rises.
Create and the naked soul is revealed.
Hesitation wastes a precious moment of life
and leaves nothing to soothe the searching
flight of spirit in motion.
And the thoughts keep flowing with
no knowledge of the end game’s results
or the assurance of success.
I am propelled forward out of desire for that which is
better and kinder and most fulfilling.
I create the future of my life and my world
on the power of “what if”.
