What If....

What if people took the time

to watch the setting sun

Or listen to the gentle sound

of a river water run


What if people showed the love

they feel that THEY deserve

Or hold back words they want to say

if they know it only hurts


What if people chose to give

instead of only take

Or lend a hand to those in need

when times become too great


What if people felt the pain

from those of us who've lost

Or those who've given all they have

no matter what the cost


What if people lived each day

as if it were their last

Or looked towards the future

to overcome their past


What if people walked a mile

in the shoes of someone else

Or thought about how others feel

instead of just themselves


What if people read these lines

and took each word to heart


What if......
