Don’t tell me

life fragile

Life is so fragile. One minute everything can be fine and the next someone can be gone. Our bodies survive so much but there are limits. We tend to live as if nothing will ever be wrong and maybe this is how it should be. If we spend each day worrying about what will happen next we will drive ourselves crazy. The truth is there is not much we can do about the future except to hope we have one.

 

AHEAD

what is to come

we can’t know

it’s not here yet

I can’t see

 

Do I want to know

no and no

for knowing

can break me

 

I may see joy

or fear

or pain

who knows

 

to see ahead

no and no and no

please don’t tell me

it can’t be borne
