What If
BY
Shel Silverstein


Last night, while I lay thinking here,
some Whatifs crawled inside my ear
and pranced and partied all night long
and sang their same old Whatif song:
Whatif I'm dumb in school?
Whatif they've closed the swimming pool?
Whatif I get beat up?
Whatif there's poison in my cup?
Whatif I start to cry?
Whatif I get sick and die?
Whatif I flunk that test?
Whatif green hair grows on my chest?
Whatif nobody likes me?
Whatif a bolt of lightning strikes me?
Whatif I don't grow talle?
Whatif my head starts getting smaller?
Whatif the fish won't bite?
Whatif the wind tears up my kite?
Whatif they start a war?
Whatif my parents get divorced?
Whatif the bus is late?
Whatif my teeth don't grow in straight?
Whatif I tear my pants?
Whatif I never learn to dance?
Everything seems well, and then
the nighttime Whatifs strike again!


Add your own five Whatifs that create fear in your life?

1. Whatif I have a car accident on the way home?

2. Whatif the earth becomes uninhabitable?

3. Whatif our summer vacation isn't any fun?

4. Whatif there is no more chocolate?

5. Whatif we don't pass the next Achievement test?

Whatif I moodled badly?
Whatif I created a blundering blog ?
Whatif I crashed my computer?
Whatif I didn't write What if's?
Whatif I changed my name?

Whatif my pants rip?

Whatif I trip and fall in front of others?
