Lethologica – Chloe Fox
If the world was quiet, then you would be able to live
without worry – about money, about friends, about
school, about anything; and you could buy
whatever your heart desired.
If you could buy whatever your heart desired, then
you would buy a large house with a pool, one that
you could jump in without slathering oily sunscreen
on your skin.
If you could jump into the pool without slathering oily
sunscreen on your skin, then you would finally get
your sweet freckles and rosy cheeks back without
If you finally got your sweet freckles back, maybe
then you would feel a little bit more confident and
would speak up in class, sharing your opinions.
If you would speak up in class sharing your
opinions, then maybe people would listen to you
and you would make more friends.
If you would make more friends, then maybe you
wouldn’t feel so lonely every day, sitting by yourself
left wondering if people actually cared about you or
if they were pretending to like you.
If you wouldn’t feel so lonely, then you would be
able to believe people when they said that they liked
If you were able to believe people when they said
that they liked you, then you’d be able to talk to
them about anything that was on your mind instead
of going home and sitting on your bed for hours.
If you were able to talk with them about anything
that was on your mind, then maybe you’d feel as
though you wanted to get out of bed in the morning,
excited for days to come.
If you felt as though you wanted to get up in the
morning, then you would slowly become happy;
smiling and laughing without it being fake.
If you were able to smile and laugh without it being
fake, then you’d be yourself, never having to hide
around everyone. You’d be able to cherish every
moment you have with the people you love without
worrying about whether they liked you.
