If

If

A Poem by Thoughts In Time
"

When you realise it’s not what it seems.

"
'If':

If only
I
Could see
Into
'Their'
Minds-
What is
It there
That I
Would find?
What
Makes them
Feel so
Incomplete
So
Unreal-
That into
Others lives
They want
To 'steal'-
To become
Accepted
Instead
Of
Rejected-
To feel
Loved?
Attractive?
But then
The
Questions
Abound-
'what if-
It should
Be a game?
What if
They don't
Feel the
Same?
What if
The day
Never
Comes?'
But
The
'what if',
Needs
To be
Turned
Around-
Into self-
It
Must be
Found!!

'What if-
You
Loved
Yourself
A bit more?
What if-
You went
Knocking
On
Heavens door?
What if-
You wanted to
Know more
From
Behind
That
Unopened door?
Looked about-

Trying to
Find yourself
just
Brings
Doubt-
Forget
The attention,
And who
Does it
Mention?

Its the
Flesh
Of
The mind-
Its a
Human
Kind-
Bringing
'What ifs,'
To your
Heart-
Bringing
Confusion-
Disillusion-

It will
All
Work out
A certain
Way-
On a
Certain
Day-

So-
Forget
The
' what if',
And
Be part
Of the plan-
Which was
Never
Set out
By
Man....

Usually I don't like one word lines. But this worked very well.

Reading it felt like tumbling down a mountainside of narcissism, faux confidence and insecurity. The pile of rubble at the end was quite nice.

I like your style.

I like this. Especially the flow and the way you formatted the poem. Its really snappy seems like it could be a spoken word piece or even a rap.
