We Don't Know

PROMPT: Mysteries Abound

We don't know how long we'll be with the ones we love; intertwined together like the shoelaces of our past. We don't know what our legacy will be; can't fathom the endless expanses of time after we no longer feel. We don't know what would've happened, what we could've become.

And we certainly haven't agreed on...anything at all.

Into The Unknown

PROMPT: Mysteries Abound

How well do we really know the world we live in? Not well enough. How were the seven wonders of the world made? How were our countries and continents made? How was the earth made? All questions we will never know the answers to.

Certainly haven't

PROMPT: Mysteries Abound

We don't know why we are here though we are pushing us forward to claim it. We don't know what is inside us; what is struggling to shine; though we are restless to shape us into the form we 'think' we should be. We don't know what becomes of us after the angels in black come to fetch us with their horrific jingles. And we certainly haven't agreed on to stay true to us through the journey though we desperately...

Goodbye

PROMPT: Mysteries Abound

I don't know
Why I fall in love with you?
You make me grow
You make me happy
you make me wild
you make me sad
You make me 'ME'

Why can't I stop falling in love?
Endless trips of emotions
Infinite opportunities
I fly with your wings
You cover me in the blanket of home
Heart filled memories
You make me 'ME'

I don't know 
Why is man forgetting you?
Man has learned
to turn blind to his deeds ...

time

PROMPT: Mysteries Abound

1.
i don’t know
why the future feels like walking up flights of stairs
to a tower made of translucent glass,
with some steps missing or broken,
revealing the empty abyss underneath.
and with cracks snaking through the tower,
and shards falling off,
it feels like it's waiting to fall apart
and pull everything
down
       down
              down

2.
i don’t know
how the past can feel like a hazy, foggy mess

young dreamers wait by windows

PROMPT: Mysteries Abound


clouds are made of water drops. or so they tell us.
how do we know that is what they are really made of?

what is stopping clouds from being made of dandelion seeds with desires too big for the grassy meadows of the earth? what is stopping clouds from being made of cotton flowers with courage too big for the rows of fields?
what is stopping clouds from being made of dreams?

how do we know it isn't true? because...

People, and Seas, and Stars, and Leaves

PROMPT: Mysteries Abound

  • We don't know what's in the deepest sea,
    That pulls, and calls so many to leave,
    What's in the greenest ocean depths,
    That you can't follow for fear of death.
 
  • We don't know what's beyond the farthest stars,
    We barely know where in the universe we are,
    We don't know what's beyond here,
    We don't know if there's another place called there.
 
  • We don't know how beautiful the world is,
    Mountains and trees, oceans and mists, ...

Earth overshoot day

PROMPT: Mysteries Abound

We don‘t know how to use our planet‘s resources in a sustainable way. We don‘t know what candidates to elect in order to stop the climate change. We don’t know the horrors we will have to face the next years and we certainly haven‘t agreed on a way to get through all this together.

Pronunciation

We don’t know if it’s car-ml or care-a-mel.
We don’t know if it’s cray-on or crawn.
We don’t know if it’s see-rup or sir-up.
And we certainly haven’t agree on how to spell whoa or woah.

Why????

We don't know how or why we came to be.
were we just put here for the world's sake or maybe to stain the clear universe.

untold

PROMPT: Mysteries Abound

We don’t know why we were put here. What is the purpose in our life; what’s the reason we were born on this land.

We don’t know what our future holds but we’re the ones who can control it. Our future lies in our hands.

We don’t know whether we will be remembered for the good deeds we've done or whether we will simply fade away.

And we certainly didn’t agree that destiny shouldn't determine our life but rather we...

we don't know how we got here. how your name on a list next to my name led to this: this, and whatever this will be tomorrow, when i will wake up with two missed calls on my phone and one message.

we don't know how to fix this. that i'm sure of, at least - we are truly in this mess. for now i will keep walking into tables and you will keep stringing daisy chains from your earrings....

what i'll never understand

PROMPT: Mysteries Abound

we don't know why we get to sit here every day and be together
we don't know why on the other side of the word, people are suffering just to get their next meal
we don't know what will happen tomorrow
and we we certainly haven’t agreed on how we got to be so lucky.

The Climate Denier's Discovery

PROMPT: Mysteries Abound

We don't know if the world is really warming up. We don't know if these "greenhouse gases" really do any harm. We don't know how we could reach net zero by 2050. We certainly have not agreed on the data.

Wait, have we?

timeless

PROMPT: Mysteries Abound

we don't know what comes after death; whether we become angels or demons, or anything at all
we don't know what the future holds; whether we'll rise to the occasion, or meet our downfall
we don't know how to change the past; how to bring back the days when we truly felt alive
and we certainly haven't agreed on how to live in the present; how to make our mark before we die

Will we ever know?

PROMPT: Mysteries Abound

We don’t know if all of this, everything, will end in nothing. Or if it will continue to expand forever. We don’t know why some people die and some people live. We don’t know why some people hold certain beliefs that seem irrational, or cruel, or sick.
And we certainly haven’t agreed upon whether all peoples’ lives, or just some, are worth anything at all.

poetry, vitroil, love, and silence

PROMPT: Mysteries Abound

we don't know why you bleed poetry in your darkest of moments, or perhaps in the highest of moments
we don't know why you rethink and pore over and draw out the many, many ways you could kill the loud, open-chewing, maskless stupid bastard sitting in the other table in your mind
we don't know why narcissus fell in love with his reflection and now in your jaded and tired years you are forever searching for something like narcissus's bliss ...

Ineffable

PROMPT: Mysteries Abound

We don't know why the earth slow-dances with the sun

We don't know what silent song the symphony of stars is playing in the sky

We don't know what the wind whispers to the trees

And we certainly don't agree on how to remove long awaited answers from the melodies we don't remember to hear

We Don't Know

We don't know why we're here; only that we are.
We don't know who we are; only that we wish we knew.
We don't know if we're alone; only that we hope otherwise.

We certainly can't agree on what we know.

Love and Loss

PROMPT: Mysteries Abound

We don't know why love hurts, why it aches in our chest and why fear of losing it forces the air from our lungs.

We don't know how to cherish the time we have, not without wasting precious moments with war and hurt and fear.

We don't know, or we don't remember at least, that we should never walk away angry and so we're left with memories of final goodbyes tainted by anger and arguments over stupid things.

And we certainly...

Starry Scepticism

PROMPT: Mysteries Abound

We don't know how many stars we gaze at. We don't know why they make us feel a certain awe and will to dream. We don't know why those that fall can grant our greatest wishes. And we definitely haven't agreed on how to stop the chaos below.
