If Spiders Had Wings - Poem by Maja Dezulovic
If only I could taste the thought of another human being
So that I may learn to trust.
If only I could stand tall among strangers
And never look down to stare at their feet.
If only life was long and memories short
To prolong the living and shorten the longing.
If only life was perceivably fair
And people perceivably honourable
Then we'd all believe in integrity.
If only bankers and salesmen
Were voluntary aid workers
Then the world would know nothing of scarcity.
If only we understood nature
As well as it understands us.
If only poems were not mere words
And phrases could rise up, shake up and awaken dead minds and cold hearts.
If spiders had wings.
