'If' - Poem by Chelsea Kulesha

If you teach people things they never knew,
If you care for others more than you care for yourself,
If you still lick the leftover batter off the spoon,
If your favorite blanket is a patchwork quilt,
If you love to wear cozy socks,
If you adore the aroma of a campfire and the sounds of the woods,
If you laugh about something at least once a day,
If you overcome the things you're scared of,
If you can use 4 napkins while eating barbecued ribs,
if your hands are coarse from many days work,
...... you have a life well lived
