“What If?”

What if

You jump from the top

Out of exhaustion

And die tonight?

What if

You kill yourself tonight,

In a room,

Full of toys,

And in a room,

Full of memories?

What if

You die tonight


Without crying for help,

Leaving family,

Friends and everything behind?

What would happen

To the unfinished cricket matches,

That were abandoned

Due to unavoidable circumstances?

What would happen

To the books

You have always loved,

And what would happen

To the bookmarked pages

That might be waiting

For you to return to them,

And read your favorite lines

For the umpteenth time?

And they will get a touch

And feel the warmth.

What would happen to William Sydney Porter, Anna Sewell and even Jeffrey Archer,

Who have crafted loads, 

For you?

What would happen 

To the upcoming seasons Game of Thrones?

You won’t be there 

To witness the magic

Of Harry Potter series

After years.


What would happen,

To the dreams

You’ve always had?

What would happen,

To your personal diary,

Where you have all your journals written,


What would happen

To the promises you have made

To your mother?


What would happen

To all the places

You have always wanted to go to?


Nothing would happen,

If you died tonight.

Your absence doesn’t matter a bit.

Your demise

Will be,

I tell you,

Nothing more than just a death certificate.

That won’t make a difference.

The world will forget you,

After you’re gone.

You will only make a difference,

While you live;

Live like a legend,

Live like an inspiration.

You think

Things have always gone wrong,

And hence,

You decided to die.

But think,

What if,

Things become easier?

What if,

Life takes a different path?

What if?

But then,

It will be too late.

“Dear Claire, “What” and “If” are two words as non-threatening as words can be. But put them together side-by-side and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life: What if? What if? What if?”

~Letters To Juliet (2010)
