CULTIVATING EMPOWERMENT THROUGH POETRY

If

If I try harder to finish the things I need to do
If I am never able to use my shoes the way I used to
If something happens to Louie and we never meet again
If I get lost in my head again and I cannot find my way back
If I see you again
If I go to the gym, will that help me relax more?
If Oscar goes back to his ex-girlfriend
If I would have called my Mom that night
If I get lost in my head and I cannot find my way back home
If I give my heart away, will this time be for sure?
If I get lost in my head and I cannot find my way back to you
If I didn’t have the support I have now, will I be safe?
If I can’t ever smell the the aroma of garlic
If I get sick
If I never see the moon at night
If I never smile with my full mouth
If I never work again, will I lose myself?
If we would not laugh with joy and happiness
If my memories were gone in one day
If the things that I need now are not that important
If I kiss your cheek today, would that make you happy?
