The Unknown

galaxies beguile and beckon,
mouths of black holes yawn.
I face the unknown,
bent of body, but bright of mind,
not fearing the dawn
of old age that comes
to all stars, planets, and man.
I face the unknown,
time running through my fingers
like grains of silvered sand.

  1. Knowing that the unknown in your life is nothing to fear, that, is biggest achievement we can ever have in our lives, because from here on out, we carry ourselves in our lives, fearlessly.

      I agree…and overcoming the fear of old age and death is often the first step to living fearlessly.
