If

If

A Story by Mr. D
"

I now realize just how much I want to live...

"

If there’s something worth having in this world.

I want to have it.


If there’s something worth living for in this world.

I want to find it.


If I must walk this world alone, I will do so.

If it means I can live.


For a long time, I’ve wanted nothing more than to die and leave this world. I’ve begged, blasphemed, and even done unspeakable things because I wanted to leave and didn’t get to.


Now, I want to live. I don’t know why. Maybe I have a reason to. Maybe I really don’t. All I know is, I want to live now. I don’t want to die. There will never be a time when I’m ready to die, but what if it’s too late? What if there’s no going back?


Will my pleas fall on deaf ears. Will my tears be ignored by blind eyes? I don’t know. All I can do is wait. Will God be merciful to me and allow me to keep living? I don’t know that either, but if it’s possible, I’d like to live.


To find something in this world worth living for, and if at the end of my life, I fail to find that thing, at least I can say I lived. But what if it’s too late?
