Uncertainty is…

a natural feeling

that allows one time

to hesitate,

to question,

to consider

what is at

stake.

 

Uncertainty is…

when the words

you know

like

your own name

fail to rise

in your throat,

condensing

instead into droplets

of forgetfulness that

infect the

air.

 

Uncertainty is…

the

playground

ofthe

Curious.

 

Uncertainty is…

a black hole

where our emotions

thoughts beliefs

and ideas

goto

die.

The cord

must be cut

in order for

the soul to survive.

Although one

can recover it is a

steep

climb.

 

Uncertainty is…

waking up and thinking

COVID19 in your eyes

and its grit are on your feet.

It’s wondering if you’ll ever feel

whole after accomplishing your dreams ....

 

Uncertainty.  

It pleads with us

to look the other way,

weigh the pros and cons,

trust our gut,

don’t take a chance,

dive in,

walk away

and then congratulate

ourselves for making the

“right” decision

 

… or was it?
