Do you ever wonder "What if?"

Do you ever wonder “What if?”

We were all entirely free

No obligations, no rules, no laws

We could just do whatever the hell we want

Do you ever wonder “What if?”

One day you woke up to be the last person on earth

Would you be happy at first and then go crazy

Just imagine, to be yourself all the time

Do you ever wonder “What if?”

People obeyed your every command

They would do whatever you wanted

Your personal army of slaves

Do you ever wonder “What if?”

You found out your whole life was a show

You aren’t actually living in the real world

Cameras everywhere, but you never knew

Do you ever wonder “What if?”

Your every wish came true

No more obstacles in your path

But the bad wishes would also come true

Do you ever wonder “What if?”

You could have any super power you wanted

Would you actually help people?

Would you use them for good or evil?

Do you ever wonder “What if?”

Everything in your life never existed

Everything was a figment of your imagination

You whole life was lived in your head

Do you ever wonder “What if?”

All of us are really the aliens

We’re all being observed by a smarter species

We’re just their guinea pigs

Do you ever wonder “What if?”

We all have actually died before

This might not be our first life

We just don’t remember the last ones

Do you ever wonder “What if?”

We’re all actually just dead

We might be the spirits stuck on earth

We just never got a chance to leave

Do you ever wonder “What if?”

Where are you trying to make

Where are you trying to make it? Why do we have to know the point of life? What if we are just supposed to slow way down and live in the moment, observing every fine detail with wonder and awe?

what if i'm trying to

what if i'm trying to accomplish something? what if we are meant to know the point of life so we know our purpose in life? what if we try slowing down and living in the moment and the moment is over? what if we end up with just memories?

What if the moment is all

What if the moment is all there is?

What 'if', in-deed, my wise

What 'if', in-deed, my wise fairy... if you have one foot in yesterday, and one in tomorrow, it has been said, you are cra**ing on today. I believe it!! Whenever I find myself compelled to do more than I can do at my best, it is my cue to search for why I am allowing some imagined fear of guilt to drive my vehicle.

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "
