What If?


What if

What if you never got your heart-broken
Never had to experience the pain unspoken

What if success was all that you knew
Failures weren’t even far-in-between or few

What if you never experienced any sorrow
Always lived like there was no tomorrow

What if you never had a run-in with bad luck
Made a fortune even when recession struck

Surely, you think things would be so much better
Your hunky dory life would never shatter
But life’s a roller coaster ride with its ups & downs
It isn’t complete without its share of frowns

These little failures teach us how to live
We receive only when we learn to give
You need darkness to really appreciate light
Only through wrongs, will you learn what’s right

  1. Nice poetry. Putting a twist to some of your verses 🙂

    What if you never got your heart-broken
    Could you have understood unconditional love?

    What if success was all that you knew
    Could you have felt the exhilaration of victory?

    What if you never experienced any sorrow
    Could you have had compassion for others?
