What If?


What if
You could name your heart’s pulse maker
Put it there on page
Like a brilliant strategic plan
Except one that gets used not put on the shelf
What if you could name what matters most
Everything single darn thing
That made you come alive
Fully really alive
I mean like electric
Not cheap doritos or numbing sitcom
“Okay I am breathing”
But like
“Whoa! Aaaaaaamaaaaaaazing! Yes!”
I am here for a reason
And this right here
This
Is it.
What if you lived for those things
And life became one big beautiful magic world
Where those things were the home bases
You rounding those corners as fast as you could
Knowing the sweetness of the slide,
Not caring about the dirt on your pants or the rug burn
You on this hobbit quest
Like a hawk
Clear-eyed
Unafraid
And let’s be honest,
A bit badass (if one could say that).
What if
“no” was easy to say to what didn’t serve that purpose
And the heart was not hooked into being liked or pleasing to others
Because it was that simple
If only for a blink in the universe
You really got your twinkle on.
I mean
Really
What
If
?
