The Unknown

The Unknown

A Poem by Poppy Ruth Silver

When I was born

I was delivered with forceps


At the age of five

measles gave me a lazy, left eye


At the age of ten

I lost my way and time stood still


At the age of fifteen

I knew I wanted to be a nurse


Blank....

so many moments lost


The unknown isn't always

because someone hides

it is because they truly don't remember


Right now

I am on a mission

all the past events

that have carved my path

don't seem so profound


There is only now

and I am on a mission

to live

Very positive thinking and I like the snapshots of your life at five year intervals. The past is a funny place I find and often deceives, you have picked out some happy memories and significant events that have shaped your life, they seem quite ordinary to everybody but to you they are what makes you you. There is no map of the future it is the unknown it is not based on the past and so we can go in any direction... In theory!

"Blank....

I felt these two lines kick me in the belly. It's so true. I also love the affirming thought you throw at us in the very end. No matter how many struggles we face to form who we are, they all encompass the challenge of just living. It is a mission and one worthy of pursuit.

Life does give us speed bumps. We must overcome and never give in.
"There is only now
and I am on a mission
to live"
The above lines are true. Easy to give up. Harder to go forward. Thank you for the outstanding poetry.

It's one motivating piece which shows the way and I can completely relate to it as am also in the same state of mind .
I wish Godspeed to you and myself as well.
And yeah...you are born to shine Poppy and its time to reclaim your life. And you deserve at least 10 times more of life than an average person walking on Earth.
