What If?

In my head
I’m someone else
I lead a different life
I wear white with pride
not black in shame
it’s in technicolour
not film noir

There’s a song
playing on my mind
it has a beat like a heart
not a dirge, not the blues
it’s bright
it’s fun
it’s strong

There’s a sense
that something’s wrong
with my mind
with my soul
inside is out
outside is in
and the way is blocked

In my head
I’m not me
but someone else
on the path not taken
to a different future
somewhere over there
and the door is shut

There’s a sound
through the walls
whispering ghosts
sisters and twins
decisions made
options lost
stuck here forever.

Artist's Description

I am an avid fan of Fringe – it’s my favourite tv series ever, and it made me think about the choices we make in life and where they take us and how different our lives might have been if we’d just made one single different choice somewhere along the way….
