What if?

by Marilyn Moy

hey future me,
What if
I was taller?

What if
we never felt lonely
never outcasted 
excluded from others 

What if 
we all lived in communion with each other
without any bitter resentment or anger?
I guess we would become robots

What if 
the abstract word and thought of "evil"
never once lived
in our minds

Would the world 
be a better place?

Younger me:
All I know is this
even if we cry out countless times  
even if our tears overflow our cup
broken hearts 
make for 
an evermore beautiful
