What if you gave me a chance to be God?

Dr Roshan Radhakrishnan
What if you gave me a chance to be you? 

What if there were no shades of grey in us - just white and more pristine white?
What if like the rest of the animals on this planet, there were no rich or poor?
What if the worst evil we were capable of was saying no to third helpings of dessert?
What if leaders fought their wars over chess sets and allowed human beings and innocent children to live? 

What if we could actually strive for world peace and attain it instead of preaching about it behind firearms?

What if love was a disease we all contracted and cancer merely an emotion that we could control?
What if the good you do made you prosperous and gold & cash were just worthless baubles and papers?
What if we took a step back from the castes, creeds and religions and just saw the world as one shared foster home inhabited by over a billion children in love?

What if you did not need to waste the resources of this planet for wood and oil but could make what we need just by accumulating selfless deeds?
What if you knew your soul mate from the moment you began to exist rather than suffer the pangs of loneliness and fear?
What if you did not know your hands could be used as weapons?
What if rapes and molestations could not occur because like the penguins yonder, such a  thought did not even exist? Would our women be able to walk free then and share a smile of kindness without fear?
What if we all had the choice to lead a joyous life, without harming everyone we come in contact with and got the chance to die with a smile on our faces?
What if loving God was not a criteria to being loved by God?
What if God just revealed himself and we saw him for what he or she truly was instead of making our own versions of him and then killing to defend that version?

What if it were all possible at the snap of a finger and you just forgot you could do it, God?
What if you trusted me and gave me a chance just for this infinitesimal moment in time to be you?
What if you allowed me to be God, my Lord...
