If Only.......

Poem


If only you could foresee the damage you were doing.

If only you had unleashed the human in you at the right time.

What goes around comes back around, they say.

If only you could abide by the saying.


If only you could respect the real essence of freedom,

And had chained the demons of your insides on time.

If only you hadn't been this selfish lately.

If only you had understood "POWER",

And hadn't been a part of the rat race that seemed to go on forever but lead you nowhere.

If only you were just a bit more human than a machine,

If only you had been a bit more sensitive towards the more important things.

If only Hope and Love were your life's pillars,

If only literature and history had a better impact on you.

If only it wasn't just you that you saw in your Mirror of Erised.


Maybe,

Just Maybe,

You would have been in a better place,

Not so lost,

Not so caged.

Not having to learn all of this the hard way.

Not pushing the nature to make you aware of these realizations.

Maybe, you could have saved yourself and those important to you.


But now,

This is the apocalypse,

Wiping you away and your kind.

And there you stand like a mere spectator,

Watching all your riches fade away,

Realizing you were wrong,

Oh so wrong,

All along the way.....
