There's so much I can't get a grip on,
so much I can't really see.
But does it really matter
to anyone else but me?

So many roads I went down
when I knew I shouldn't have.
So many times I left myself to drown
thinking I was being brave.

Instinct, that tickling sensation
is it real or is it not?
Instinct, it's ringing heavy in my ears
but still I let go far to easy of my fears.

Have I learned nothing
or did I in fact earn a prize?
Have I learned something
hidden behind a surprise?

Secrets unravel,
lies travel,
raven crows
and nobody knows
where this will end...
Least of all me
because I just don't want to see.

This is excellent, Elisabeth

So much indeed, Elisabeth, and the question arises should we know and if we do know is it worth it or will it bring us any closer to truth. I love where you go and where you take me here.

Very nice write, Elisabeth. My personal view of this dilema is, whatever... life is too short. Keep it up, your writes just keep getting better Peace, SS

Roads traveled are many...we never know what is around that bend..much to think about in your poem
Reviewed by Felix Perry
Often it is better that we don't know and just let life unfold like an unread book...some chapters happy, some sad, some exciting some bad but always a new page ahead.

You have provided me with substance to reflect upon, Elisabeth. Thank you. Love and best wishes,

Reviewed by George Carroll
Powerful insight into the unknown that is better not to know before hand but prepare as best we can.
