Knowing the future

Future knowledge

I wish that I could clearly see
the things the future holds for me -
the ones that are nice I would embrace
and from the rest, I’d turn and race.

Yet, I think fear would overtake me
and then I would not be who I could be,
for I would be paralysed from the head
and might struggle to simply get out of bed.

So, perhaps I would rather not know
what my future life has in tow.
Perhaps I’d rather trust the Holy Spirit
to equip me for life and all that is in it.

An original poem by Miekie (Marietjie Uys), titled Future Knowledge.
