A Poem by nevershoutnever.

What if...

If you can put a smile on your face when all you want to do is cry in your solitude.
If you can soar to your hearts desire without a pair of wings.
If you can read in between the lines.
If you can reach out to someone else, without falling apart yourself.
If you can take the first step to forever.
If you can imagine.
If you can see inside what no one else can.
If you can hold back tears and not break down in the process.
If you can wait for a stormy day to let your tears blend with the rain.
If you can stand through destruction and still be a hand to hold.
If you can help someone else, rather than push them down.
If you can be polite to people when all you crave is time alone.
If you can make mistakes.
If you can see flaws are more important than perfections, for there isn't such a thing.
If you can realize reality is just a joke.
If you can realize imagining isn't just playing pretend.
If you can realize you want a hand to hold, then you should come to someone who will listen and care.
