  • I just noticed how
    is sandwiched inside of life
    L IF E
    maybe like a cookie
    or the questions inside a book
    isn't it always an if
    if I do
    if you don't
    if you will
    if I won't
    if I leave
    if I stay
    if you give
    if I accept
    if I cry
    if you see
    if you speak
    if I'm silent
    if I show
    if you tell
    if I love
    if you can't
    how can if be so tiny
    yet weigh so very much?
