i don’t know

If what you need is an answer — you can get one —

Go ahead and make one —

Or take one.

Cause really, any will do —

If  resolving the question as soon as possible is of the utmost importance.  But —

If  you want to know the truth — if you want to be certain in your heart of hearts — then you must agree to some amount of waiting and seeing.

A time of testing —

Playing it out —

And living in a state of  — doubt.

Today I allow myself to feel “I don’t know” without rushing to any conclusions.  I allow myself to feel completely uncertain about what’s happening now and what it might mean.  I allow myself to leave the sentence unfinished.

For now.


I don’t know.
