The only thing I know for sure


The only thing I know for sure
Is that I know nothing
and even that
I can’t be sure of

Appearances
Thoughts
Feelings
Experiences
All my senses
Memories
My past and present
My hopes and dreams

Of these words
As I jot them down
I can’t be sure
If they are mine
If they exist
Or if I

My imagination
My truth
Stand on a shaky ground
So do I

One way today
Another tomorrow
How I can say with certainty
That my way
Is the right way
How can they

      1. Reflecting on my own uncertainty has given me more security. Nothing changed except that I tolerate the unknowable more and accept the certainty of death a bit more (But not much more) 😉

        Writing helps me clarify how I feel and what I think. It’s a wonderful practice.

        Keep writing, my friend. And good luck with your big move. You’re in my thoughts. 🙂
