what if

What if you get up one day?

And realize that things have changed,

There’s familiar things around,

But not as good as it had been.

What if you try to go out?

But you can’t as you’re chained,

You try to break free from the restrain,

But your efforts go completely in vain.

What if you see your loved ones?

And you can’t reach out to them,

You struggle against the hold,

Unable to call out any of their names.

What if no one came to your rescue?

You’re left there to rot all alone and scream,

Thinking back to the start of all,

You get up startled in your bed from this dream.

What if you start thinking positive things?

Then you will not have nightmares like these,

Live in the present and be happy,

Learn to enjoy the life given to thee.
