What if

How is there
Any way of knowing
What is and what was?
Or what will ever be?

It could be argued
(and for all we know, it's probable)
That nothing has
Ever existed and
Nothing ever will.

I could be a goddess
And this could be my kingdom.

Or what if
My whole life was a dream,
And the next time I wake up,
I'm an infant?

What if
There was never any "waking up,"
And we're just an elaborate
In space?
A manipulation of matter?

What if
We were all a deep, maddening red,
And society isn't
What we think it to be?

(Ah, life is full
Of these crazy what-ifs,
But they are only real to me.)
