What if we don’t really exist,
What if we are images,
Recurring in someone’s imagination,
What if life is a lie and we don’t actually die,
What if we are hallucinations in a crazy mind,
What if we are just but a mere dream,
What if the dream comes to an end,
And the dreamer wakes up to reality?

What if it is true that we were created,
What if we evolved as they say,
But what if we are not living,
Just imaginary creatures in someone’s book,
What if we are personified in a fantasy story,
What if we are an exaggerated myth,
What if life is fiction,
What if we are characters in a fabricated movie,
What if Covid-19 is an horrific scene,
What if the movie ends in suspense?

But what if is true,
What if we are living,
What if it is not a lie that we actually die,
But what if there is no life after death,
What if it is not a dream but a reality,
What if God actually exists,
What if the Bible is a Holy Book,
What if Jesus is the son of God,
What if it is true he walked on water,
What if heaven is not an overrated fallacy,
What if it is true that all sinners will go to hell,
What if we really exist,
What if we are just a phantom,
What if you don’t infer what I am saying,
What if I am overthinking,
But what if you judge me for questioning your existence?
