"IF" By: Darius J. Mora

Fri, 10/04/2013 - 12:16 -- Darius


If I could go about in a most graceful, pleasant way and smile at those I pass to brighten up the day.  If I could help someone when in sorrow or distress and show them that I'd really like to make their burdens less.  If I could share a love, a love that someone needs, regardless of his color, nationality or his creed.  If I could still stand tall and proud when talked about or used, yet still not let that word called hate become my daily abuse...then all the world shall know and what is more, they'll even see...the day they'll look around and find, that "IF" was really me.
