As If – Spoken

IMG_00000098

as if there had been an option,
a choice in this matter
called life
champions of “if” we are
always hoping
on and on
but the graveyard cures us
no more “ifs”
no options left
and luckily no illusions either
these were lives, too
disappointed and vain
us and them
here and beyond

but the grass and the blackbirds
the sun and the rain
and the days the days the days
remain
lyrics by Kat Diestel
