“I have accepted fear as part of life – specifically the fear of change… I have gone ahead despite the pounding in the heart that says: turn back….”
― Erica Jong
Seize my breath
Wring my gut
It is a feat to climb from my nest
Out in the world
We are alone, alone
Who will be with you, when you take your last breath?
Which of your loved ones will be taken before that day?
How many days will you wake after the heartbreak?
It is too much to know
It is the not knowing that haunts
So I keep moving
Eat chocolate pudding
So I can forget
Complain about rain
While the asteroid gears towards Earth
I pretend to not know
But it is so
It is so
