a piece of uncertainty: how will i get there?

Friday, April 16

By Mia Jo Domenick

Dear reader,

Very recently, I have been put into a situation where I have to make a large decision that not only affects my life but others. For this choice, I am forced to think about my future. When I had thought about it, I was able to pinpoint a feeling. In the following poem, I have exaggerated the feeling into something unrealistic and unachievable, as "everything was beautiful and nothing hurt" is untruthful. Yet, it summarizes what I want to feel in my future: to be in a peaceful state given any situation.

 

everything was beautiful and nothing hurt.

 

i can only fantasize of it.

but what is there to fantasize?

 

i know the exact feeling,

the exact sensations.

 

but i don't know what would lead me to it

(it being where everything is beautiful and

nothing hurt).

 

the feeling would be happy, i think.

the sensations: hard to say/describe.

 

i just am unsure of how i would get to that climax 

of blissfulness.

 

would it be a lover?

would it be me? 

or maybe not even a person.

 

would it be closure?

reassurance?

 

now and then, when i think about it, i can feel a little of the emotion i am

trying to relay to you.

 

i hope whatever or whoever leads me to that feeling is great,

it ought to be.
