What If....

What if people took the time
to watch the setting sun
Or listen to the gentle sound
of a river water run

What if people showed the love
they think that THEY deserve
Or hold back words they want to say
if they know it only hurts

What if people chose to give
instead of only take
Or lend a hand to those in need
when times become too great

What if people felt the pain
from those of us who've lost
Or those who've given all they have
no matter what the cost

What if people lived each day
as if it were their last
Or looked toward the future
to overcome their past

What if people walked a mile
in the shoes of someone else
Or thought about how others feel
instead of just themselves

What if people read these lines
and took each word to heart

What if......

It would be a better world to live in if everyone at least tried.
Your words are full of goodness and truth. The poems I've read that you have written are gentle and filled with love which contradicts the pen name you use.
