Buxton Shippy (7-27-55 / Montego Bay, Jamaica)
What If I Could...
What would my world be
If I have never been tempted?
Maybe I would be pure as dew
To see the silver linings;
Although my desire is this,
The world we live in will not allow it.
What if I could start over
To have only angels write on my mind,
Tempering my eyes to see only the holy?
Would my realities be heavenly,
Or even paradise?
