Unsung odes

The living do not have a choice, but to cross the bridges in time. I do not know to what extent plant and animal life can foresee the future, but human beings possess this crucial toll of survival.

It is the ability to forecast, project, dream, plan, visualize that keeps us going. In absence of this, the end of every day, week, month or year would terrorize us. How can we walk into the future, without an iota of knowledge about what lies there?

And yet ….. we fail sometimes ….

books of future lie

unread in dark calendars

ones that have no dates

but odes to human life –

I don’t know which is for me
