What if?

What if

I was not responsible for another’s happiness

I was not accountable for the choices I made.

And I lived life for my own joy?

 

What if

I was a cloud floating around

In search of my horizon

Where the end was imminent

But a joyful existence left behind.

And I was happy about a life well-lived?

 

What if

I could float back in time, and find no regrets.

I could glide into my future, with no expectations.

I could give away all that I had,

Without being accountable or obliged to do so?

 

What if

I was unbound

I was weightless energy

Infinite and unfathomable.

I could drive a Time Machine

And step off the accelerator at will?

 

What if

Only if ….

Existence was pure joy

And we knew what it meant?
