Uncertainty, how you seem to want to follow me
I seek to rest on a safe and stable shores,
And yet, an ocean of unknown destinies dislodges me even more.
The more I resist, the more you persist.
Why can’t you let me be, with my diary of certainties that help me avoid calamities.
But you won’t be beaten, you stalk me, an ever present shadow.
I feel secure in my safe haven of monotony and predictability,
But you laugh as you continually pull the rug out from under me.
So today I stop, I no longer insist.
Your mysterious ways can have me,
For resistance is useless and fighting, wasteful.
I fling myself into the open, uncertain if you will catch me.
But throw myself I will, trusting in uncertainty’s whim.
