If Only…


If only I had a million dollars.
If only I would be remembered in history by famous scholars.

If only I could eat.
If only I could find a way to get up off these streets.

If only I had six different Ferrari’s.
If only I’d look like those on the tv and have a perfect body.

If only I could walk.
If only I could afford the technology to hear other people talk.

If only I had the world’s biggest and sickest house.
If only I was dating 10 different women besides the world’s hottest spouse.

If only I was no longer homeless.
If only the world wouldn’t make me so hopeless.

If only I had the latest phone, car and clothes.
If only I was invited to Hollywoods most popular shows.

If only I could afford proper medical care.
If only I could live in a community that’s somewhat fair.

If only I had that watch, suit and those new shoes.
If only I could afford to buy everything and everyone I choose.

If only I had clean water.
If only I could provide the necessities of life to my son and daughter.

If only I was super super famous.
If only I’d win the mega millions jackpot in Vegas.

If only I could stop my addiction.
If only society would help me out rather than punish me with a conviction.

If only I was promoted and then promoted again until I reach the top.
If only my financial success would never ever stop.

If only I had the courage to quit my job.
If only I could live a life where I love what I do and not feel like my life’s being robbed.

If only I had unlimited political power.
If only I owned and built the tallest tower.

If only I could go home from this meaningless war.
If only I could live in a world without nations and the threat of being poor.

If only I’d control all the planets oil.
If only I could keep making endless money regardless if the earth begins to boil.

If only I wasn’t under all this financial and family pressure.
If only I could escape this corporate and cultural madness and live a life of adventure.

If only I was the most powerful player in this possessive trade game.
If only I had the most fanatic followers and was the epitome of fame.

If only we recognised that technology with social concern can make everyone have more than enough food, water, stuff and space.
If only we could engineer a world where we humans live as one family, one unit, one race.

If only…
