What If

If I were a thought I would share.  A memory I would remember.  If I were a laugh I would travel through the air.  If I were a question I would ponder.  If I was a hypothesis I would test it.  If I were a molecule I would not be able to multiply. 

If I were a bird I would fly like Johnathan Livingston Seagal.  A tiger I would be the largest of the four cats.   A flower I would bloom.  If I were a penguin I would have happy feet.  A polar bear I would chase fish through holes in the ice.  If I were a female cricket I wouldn’t chirp. 

If I were a mountain I would stand tall.  A lily pad I would float.  If I were a tear I would shed.  An article I would inform.  If I were a cloud I would dissipate.  If I were snow I would fall.

If I were a window I would show you the world.  If I were a plane I would take you far away.  A lullaby I would soothe you.  If I were a dream I would come true. 

If I knew it all I wouldn’t wonder.  If I wasn't curious I wouldn't question.  If I am more than the idea of just the girl that I was then who would that make me now?
