Tally marks with my blue ink

record how many times I have dreamt

of a living life far from the fingers of fear.

What is it that calls,

that lures me into doubt’s worry wrought lair?

Bitter and brutal is the sting of uncertainty.

Unknown to us all, future, most crippling to me,

to know that I will never know what will be

wil be

but a mystery to me until its hour strikes.


Do I dare to enter this world

with such fears for what is to come,

weighed down,

yet so open to all the universe has for me.

Paradox of a youthful heart,

I have seen more than I was dealt,

more than I was prescribed

in this haste to question mark existence.

Drenched in ink,

perchance the adventure, the eagerness of it all

shall blot out my worry written

tally marks that tally to nothing

in the face of everything.


-Eva M.M.
