UNCERTAINTY – PROMPT #63

There are things we can be relatively certain of in this life. Tomorrow, the sun will rise in the east and set in the west. Yet, that of which we may be certain is limited. On the other hand, the questions in life seem inexhaustible.

Write about something you can’t grasp, or that you wish you knew more about.

 

MARIE ELENA’S CONCERN

DEMENTIA

 Words and meanings smear like watercolor on slanted mirror. 
Her ‘reasoner,’ broken.
Her fear, unspoken.
Her sense of self, lost on a shelf of saved-for-sometime dreams.
Seems little ‘clicks.’  There must be a fix – a pill that would fill her seeping soul, and bring her back,
whole.

WALT’S UNCERTAINTY:

OF DEATH AND TAXES

They claim two certainties in this life;
death and taxes. But the fact is,
they breed confusion and you can bet,
the surety ends when they start to tax death.
