What If?

What if I was not human, Just an animal convinced to be a person
Living amongst you all, barking yet thinking I’m making words

What if my hopes have been falsified?
Maybe I have been living a fake life,
Being lied to just to keep staying alive?
On hopes that ain't real.

What if crime wasn't crime?
That the police justified their use of guns by being the police?
just to oppress.

What if things aren't really the way you perceived them to be.
What if babies cried to warn you of imminent danger?
...but then you plug in their pacifier to keep them quiet.

What if you were just a clone?
The real you lived thousands of years ago
You are here making serious reasoning meanwhile it doesn't really matter.

What if we didn't need to work to get paid?
We are just being slave-driven to achieve some devil's plan.

What if?

What if we lived forever?
Would that be enough time to do right?
Would there then be enough time to spend with family?
Or would it be just too much.

What if all parents really did take the first positions while in school.
Would that mean I am nothing like my dad?
Coz I never came first in my class

What if 365 days never really makes a year.
That it was meant to be 90 days.
...and what if 24 hours wasn't a day either
Think of how old you would have become by now.

What if?

What if Eve never ate the apple and didn't give to Adam to eat.
What would it have been by now?

What if they really ate the apple and made away with the seed to plant it.
What would have been the name of the fruit; Apple? Mango? Passion fruit?
Just saying.

What if doing good is bad?
That bad guys get to live longer so they could have the chance to be good
While good guys die coz they are too good.

What if our lives and everything around us are just our imaginations?
That we see and create images the way we want them to be.
It’s just all in our minds?

What if I was just writing this to keep you glued to your screen?
To make you think a little bit outside your box for about a minute and the half.
Making you think of what you wanted to be different.

Now you are thinking of who I am and what's wrong with me.
Ok, now you are smiling. Confused and thinking I'm crazy.

What if you were right?
