Why do I have to be hopeful?  
When hope isn't my name. 
Why do I have to be Courageous? 
when courage doesn't have the courage to stay with me.  
Why do I have to read out my feelings to the 
person who doesn't even care about how i feel? 
Why do I have to move around with guilt wrapping around me? 
Why do I have to be a total stranger to love? 
Why do I have to see my imperfections in a broken glass? 
Why does my feelings have to be washed off by the river of pain? 

What if my heart isn't meant for love? 
What if my hope is buried inside the lost thin air? 
What if my courage is right in front of me but
My mind keep loosing it courage to feel it? 
What if? What if I don't stop my broken poems? 
Then I will have to express myself with my spoken words. 
Will I ever overcome this severe pain? 
What if my heart is severed from this sweet sweet love? 
What if I buried my past in yesterday's sand 
and I get to embrace my future in tomorrow's slide. 
What if my love story doesn't have to end this way? 
And what if the god of second chance gave me one last opportunity? 
Then I believe my feeling is still in me but its buried beneath the
Dungeon of my faith. 
What if the only way to fight this, is to beat against the wall of my faith? 
i just don't understand why is my what if is more complicated than my why?
