If only…

If only spectacles
helped the blind to see –
the world would feel nicer.

If only we saw –
A kaleidoscope
of beautiful memories,
than ashes of dead dreams;
the future with new hope,
than a fear
of past failures repeating;
and
the place where we are
this moment,
is one of many milestones
on the long road,
to that hopeful future.

If only…

Long back, my Inspire My Art page had got a suggestion, “Kaleidoscope of beautiful memories”, given by Bhawana. This is also an art painted by that inspiration. Thank you, Bhawana.

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. this ‘if only…’ has such a positive direction! Usually ‘if only’s…’ go something like this: If only I had used the brakes..or …if only I had a million dollars….know what I mean? This ‘if only.’ could come true!


    • Perhaps you have forgotten, Leah πŸ™‚ You have seen my longer poems before too. Glad you enjoyed it and agreed. Thank you.

    • That’s another question to ponder on, Brian πŸ™‚ How to change? But that again depends on how we feel our heartbeats going. It should want to beat for the present and future than the past, though not forgetting the past in entirety.

  2. Yes…if only…BUT, occasionally, they do come to pass…and we must cling to the if only’s that do if we are to hang on to hope. Wonderful write!


    • Occasionally, yes. It’s the hope that matters though. We bitch so much about life’s unfairness that we drown hope along with it too those times. Thanks Tash.

    • Thank you, Write Girl. Yeah, we do have lots of potential in us, just that we never see it, or see it too late.
       
      – Leo.
