Hansel and Gretel

What If?

What if?

What if there's only one door that leads to freedom,
and the person who has the key is your worst enemy?

What if you haven't done anything wrong,
but you are condemned to an eternity of misery and doom?

What if you are a slave to your mind, other's whims, fancies, dreams,
where you can't walk away from something that's caging you, sapping all your energies?

What if everything you have done until now was wrong,
every person you met or loved were not what they seemed?


What if you by letting go of things you can have better things,
by walking away from certain people, you have the chance to be with better people?

What if you can start a new life free from all bondages and expectations,
where you get to know yourself first before you get to know others?

What if you are unafraid of a major change in your life
and you are scared only by the fear of the unknown?

What if you want to be other than what you presently think you are,
and the only thing that's stopping you …

Will You?

Will You?
Will you lie,
to undo a wrong?

Will you stay true to yourself,
and risk the anger and wrath of others?

Will you stay quiet,
when prejudice and unjustness reigns?

Will you speak your mind,
when people expect silence from you?

Will you stay silent,
and not get involved in nonsense talk?

Will you drop your basket of roses and fight for your friend,
when he has lost all hope and is pursued by ghosts?

Will you try to sing,
even when there's no one in sight?

Will you keep helping others,
when no help is returned?

Will you keep trusting people,
when your outstretched hand is not taken and shook?

Will you forget this mail now,
and think of others that don't ask such questions?

Will YOU?
