Not Afraid

Not Afraid short poem

Uploaded by Irene Riz


An acute feeling as if
an arrow struck me –
vector of time,
unidirectional flow
of existence
became clear to me.

I saw its beauty
in brighter colors
and stronger forms.
I felt that I was born.

And I knew at that moment
that if I am given a gift
to feel joy this way,
my grief
will be as deep
and I should be afraid
but I was not.

We are born into an unknown world. Slowly we learn as we go. Taught by those who came before. Who in turn we’re taught By those who came before. Generation after generation passing knowledge forward. Knowledge differed region by region.
