What If? (Pt.3) - Poem by Onalethuso Petruss Ntema

What if there was no family?
would there still be marriage?
what if there was no marriage?
would there still be divorce?
what if there was no trust?
would there still be infidelity?
would there still be separation?
would there still be custody
or maintenance of minors?

what if there was no laughter?
would you know the coming after?
would there still be a matter?
wouldn't there be a culture?
what if there was no class?
would there still be inequality?

what if you never existed?
would it still be necessary
to mention you among
figures of the dead?
what if you die today?
would you, die?

what if there was no passion?
would there still be patience?
what there was no leaders?
would there still be dinners?
what if there was no bible?
would there still be sinners?
