change and uncertainty

Change and uncertainty

Two things I incessantly avoid

Stability and security

Two things I incessantly want

Head first it hits me

The uncertainty of change

The change of uncertainty

I remain uncertain about change

I change as I remain uncertain

I am told that only time will tell

Then what will it tell?

Please tell…

Preoccupied by what I cannot control

I drive myself down a tunnel of whimsy

Deep down into the abyss of smoke

There lies a hookah-smoking caterpillar

Who I hope will tell me my future

“Where am I headed?”

No response, only a puff

Then comes silence, and a question…

“Whoooo are youuuuu?”

I do not know the answer to the question

But, I do know that this will change
