Potholes

Updated: May 3, 2021

I don’t know where life will take me

Because of its twists and turns.

I don’t know what is expected of me

With the different expectations that are there.

I don’t know what’s there for me,

There is so much to take in.

I don’t know what path to take:

Should I take the path with the potholes

Or take the path with signs that direct you

To the wrong way?


Yesterday I came from a place

Of being unsure is okay.

But I know its not

Because its only playing against myself.

Nothing comes out the way I wanted.

But still, its okay to not know.

Not knowing of where tomorrow leads.

One day, I’ll have my mindset ready

And the next, its fallen into a different direction.


I don’t know why things occur

Was it meant to challenge me?

I don’t know who will run into

Will they impact on my day?

I don’t know whether I’ll beat time

And achieve as much as need?

I don’t know whether I’ll regret everything

Or have a cloud of doubt over my head.

I don’t know what is left out there,

I mean what else is there to do?

I don’t know anything,

Except the fact that I need to try.

What will I know when I try?

Will I then know something

Or will I not know anything?
