What If?

What If?

What if something does go wrong? What if it falls apart?
What if everyone does laugh and thinks I’m not too smart?
What if they think I’m a fool and think it’s a big joke?
What if I get nervous and start shaking and I choke?

What if the plan goes awry, what if something gets broken?
What if people aren’t happy and angry words are spoken?
What if folks are disappointed, saddened or upset?
What if all these things occur that haven’t happened yet?

What if you stopped worrying about what could go wrong?
What if you remembered that you’re focused, wise and strong?
What if you stayed present instead of living ahead?
You may just find your life will have not as much fear and dread

    I agree, we should not live life ahead if all we are going to do is fear it – nice poem–says a lot in just a few words

    somehow the things we spend so much time worrying about actually never happen…i say,just do it.

    I am such a “what if” sort of a girl. I have to learn to believe that the glass is half-full. This is simply an amazing poem and a lesson taught. Thankyou!
