Possibilities in the Dark

Poetry By: Mjshi

What possibilities await in the dark beyond.

In the shadows

Darkness looms

waiting, waiting, for me.

In a small, frail canoe

I look over the wooden side and wonder

What dangers await me

beneath the depths of the dark waters?

Yet what adventures would I have?

I want to have that feeling again

That electrical sensation

Breathless from excitement

Yet feeling more alive

than I had ever felt ever in my life.

Some say the world has finite possibilities

I say they are wrong

Because we'll never know, will we

until everything is over.

Yet when everything is over

it's a point of no return.

Curiosity, confound that emotion

It propels me on

Urging, encouraging

for me to find out

and take part

in the possible adventure.

But how could I?

I love life too dearly

To leave it yet.

Not yet.

Please, not yet.

Don't take me just yet.

I still have some years left in me.
