If Only


Beth Adair

If only happiness had a way
Of reaching everyone
If only fate had a way of making people smile
If only love had a way
Of being pure and joyful
If only hatred had a way
Of being obsolete
If only people had a way
Of helping each other
If only rivers had a way
Of swallowing up all the anger and sadness in the world
If only humans had a way
Of being inhuman
