I will not lie
And claim I am not afraid
Of the unknown
I am terrified
I stare into space
Romanticizing the stars
And the idea of extraterrestrial life
But as the night grows on I fear
Of black holes growing near
And the potential of the earth being consumed by the sun
I love beach vacations
But if I cannot see the earth beneath me
What is hiding in it's murky depths?
Will I meet my end with water filled lungs, lying in a bed of seaweed?
But one of the most unnerving unknowns is
What will I become?
Will I ever reach my goals?
Will I be happy?
Will I be satisfied with my life?
Or will I die full of regrets?
There will always be unknowns
I cannot escape them
But I can embrace them
