If Only

a poem by thenorm


If Only

Once I stood in the Rain

And thought

If Only

I had a raincoat.

Bitter were my footsteps

As they trampled the ground

Splashed in the mud

And spoiled my mood.

Once I sat next to a river

And I thought

If Only

I had a boat.

Angrily, did I throw rocks

Sticks and stones

Into the flowing water.

Then one day I found

I had a raincoat

I had a boat.

I had anything

And everything

I ever needed

If Only

I would open my heart

And believe.
