What If? (poem)

To be or not to be? That is the question.”

To reveal my most guarded feelings, to allow them to penetrate the mind and heart of another.

The very thought causes bursts of hesitation.

What if I start and the release feels so good that I pour my soul?

What would really happen if I give you all of me?

But oh to be free, never in fear of judgment, cared for flaws and all. What if?

There are times I think I have everything it takes, but then fear consumes and I say, “what if?”

What if fall and you fail to catch me?

What if you catch me and decide that I am not enough?

What if my heart can’t bare another break?

Would you be careful, everyday choosing to appreciate every piece of me?

Fragile is the organ that pumps the substance that keeps me alive.

Yet break after break I find myself back at “What If” and choosing to be me is always my answer, and I choose to risk it all.

Never give up on love.
