I got up, my head reeling in pain,
What if today I didn't feel like crap?
I walked out of my room wondering where I was going.
What if I could find my way?
I ate breakfast and brushed my teeth before going outside.
What if the snowflakes didn't melt as they caressed my cheek?
I ran, farther and farther into theforest, away, just running.
What if I could run away, for real this time?
The branches slapped my arms and twigs cracked beneath my feet.
What if today the tree fell, and I was around to hear it?
Would I help it back up?
Would I help her back on her feet?
Where she could stand tall and strong.
What if I wasn't strong enough?
What if I couldn't help?
What if the tree didn't make any noise?
What if, Ha. As if.
