Six Word Fridays: If

The two biggest words, says me,

would definitely be IF and MAYBE.

Two little words, huge with possibility.

If we might. maybe we could.

Maybe we oughtn’t. If we should?

two tiny insignificant words they look

How do they stymie this Brook?

    I like the rhyming, Brook. As for those two words, I don’t know if I can handle them both together in one sentence.

    I agree with Belinda. I want something more definite. If, then definitely. Not if then maybe! Maybe’s rough. So, why do I say it to my daughter….hmmmm Maybe I should just stick to yes and no!

    Love the rhyming too. It’s takes the river’s flow to turn them from possibility to actuality.

      if by river’s flow you mean persistent and sustained effort over a long period of time in the face of great obstacles, then yeah, that’s probably what my problem is 🙂

    Two words that can be used to open up possibilities!

    Wow – “if” and “maybe” . . . and your last line. I’ve been in this “place” lately where I’m seeing how many times I’ve hindered myself and your poem reflects it perfectly. I’ve had so many hopeful “maybe’s” and then I kill them with fearful “what if’s?”
    Thanks for writing this!
