What if? Poem

What If?

What if my bookshelf falls on me, and breaks my bones in two?
What if I'm hit by a bus: then what would I do?
What if masked men break into my room, and snatch me from my bed?
Or what if a stampede of elephants tramples me instead?
What if I get struck by lightning, or my plane falls from the sky?
What if I can't lift a boulder off me, no matter how hard I try?
What if a man comes from behind, and stabs me in my back?
Or what if I become too excited, and get a heart attack?
What if Earth gets hit by a comet, or by a meteoroid?
But worst of all, and I dread to think- what if I were paranoid?
