"All the world is made of faith, trust, and pixie dust." --J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan


What if mum and dad didn’t kiss away tears-
Leaving only a teddy bear to absorb them?

What if the monster under my bed-
Crawls into my heart?

What if my mistakes were plastered on every wall-
To be seen around every corner?

What if each time you breath-
Inspiration floats from your chest into another’s mind?

What if a book didn’t capture your soul-
In its pages, stuck within its dry ink?

What if success became impossible-
Waving goodbye as it disappears?

What if sorrow engulfed your soul-
Like the emptiness of blank paper?

What if the sky sinks to the ground-
Crushing everything?

What if all that you love-
Betrayed you in the night?

What if you were only left-
With what you said thanks for?

What if...?

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

This is so sweet, amazing, beautiful, deep, and yet rather sad too. Haha, to me. But I love this. It makes a person think, because it has so much depth. Never stop writing, my freind. Because you have a lot of talent and greatness in you, and you are a wonderful and amazing writer and person and friend. :) Thank you so much, for sharing this. :)
