What happens if?

What happens if the realisation is

That you are, more than perfect?

But perfection is the dichotomy

Of a deranged mind, you suspect


What happens if you are prepared

To fight hand over fist?

Until the thin membrane of life

Manifests its truth, unnoticed


What happens if you are stranded

Cast adrift in your life?

Devoid of constants to measure

The ever-impeding strife


What happens if your knowing

Becomes totally dislodged?

With your heart cast adrift

The soul cannot be judged


What happens if your mind

Starts to wander off at night?

To a star-spangled optimism

The definitive cure of man’s plight


What happens if your imagination

Is more, than the sum of its parts?

Causing a split in the seams

Spewing truths set to smart


What happens if pure potential

Is well, within your grasp?

But you’re all fingers and thumbs

And cannot undo the clasp


What happens if your reflection

Doesn’t recognise its source?

Hiding behind transparent falsehoods

The modern Trojan Horse


What happens if your wants

Cannot breathe beneath the fear?

In an attempt to catch your breath

You search a wave you can steer


What happens if your heart

Cannot fathom its own truth?

Separated by a distance

In a disconnected phone-booth

Buffering your emotions

Buffering your emotions

Tightly wrapped in cottonwool

Gives the illusion of safety

Until you open the ringpull


Peer from inside your bubble

Smell the clean, honest air

You can live out your dreams

But only if you dare


No time, just the present

The gift with which you are born

It’s your timeless connection

Which can never be torn


You’re meant to succeed

It’s the reason you’re here

Let go of all outcomes

Watch your life shift a gear


With courage, trust your judgement

Let is flow through your being

Now open your eyes wide

Recalibrate what you’re seeing
