How the fear of the unknown
births in the corner of my heart
Does the burning candle know its destiny?

Does the kite flying soaring high in the skies
knows that exact moment it will face the ground
or does the fish fear for the brutal face of the lands

We cannot live vying for the love, the sun has for its earth
our trivial minds compare our trivial existence
to this celestial passion living for the time eternal

Do the stars know their last shine before
succumbing to the eternal darkness
Unknown is the only certainty in our mortal lives.

Breaths do not come in pairs and you get caught
in its perpetuity but the faithful succession will
stop eventually.

We are living in the world of unknowns.
