What if
What if a child cried out
'I, above all things, am not worried about how I die, for I know that the world shall be so kind as to not cry'?
What if a child cried out
'I have never seen Spring, Autumn, or Fall, and I, above all, have never seen the sky'?
What if a child cried out
'I have never seen a flower, or seen the softest of lands, and I have never seen time'?
What if a child cried out
'I, above all, am blind'?
