What If

 By Lennard G. Wilkie

(A poem dedicated to “The many Who Dare to Think and Act”)

What if,

In this world,

Where limits

Multiply everywhere,

You could turn

Your everyday steps

Into  Giant Leap

And Scale

The highest mountain

What if,

You could shatter

This hidden mountain

Of self-doubts

And fear of others,

Walking in open faith

Towards the life you

 Truly want.    

What if,

You could stumble

Upon the richest place,

Where treasures infinite

Glow and Glitter

In dark ignorance,

Awaiting the Light

Seekers.

What if,

This secret place

Is your own deep mind

Full of dreams and ideals

Love and Friendship

And the will to overcome

Th challenges

Of this age of

Awakening

What if,

You could think beyond

Heavens

And bring to earth

All that is good and free

New and generous

To one and al

What if,

You stand Tall

In word and deed

Becoming Spirit Free

And believe,

Why not.

On behalf of the People of Trinidad and Tobago, the world of readers and dreamers, and on our own heartfelt personal behalf, we wish to thank San Fernando born-and-bred poet  Lennard G. Wilkie for giving us this beautiful piece of writing at a time when, as he so poignantly asks, 

“What if,

You could stumble

Upon the richest place

Where treasures infinite

Glow and Glitter

In dark ignorance,

Awaiting the Light

Seekers”

Thank you, Lennard, friend of a life-time, for  forever churning out your offerings  of guidance and wisdom to many who cannot hear,  most who do not listen, and the few who may remember.

Write your poems anyway, knowing that someday they will fall on fertile soil, perhaps in another magical moment way outside this nebulous realm.
