If Only




If only I wasn’t expected to be a miracle,
Working out everyone’s wishes,
Fulfilling everyone’s dreams,
Foreseeing everyone’s problems.

If only I could run away from the darkness,
From the gloom of expectation,
From the dearth of love,
From the penury of amour.

If only I wasn’t sensitive to barbs,
Sore with disappointments,
Ruined with recriminations,
Disheartened with broken dreams.

If only I had the strength to stand,
Clout to cut away hurt,
Stoutness to slit rank relations,
Valor to be me.
