Suddenly, the dread is real,
In a flash, truth reveals her ugly face.
The firm ground beneath gives way to acrimony,
Suddenly, the light goes out.
And it is a moment of the ugly truth.
But uncertainties best steals the moment.
Nothing pricks the psyche like not being sure.
Nothing is as dreadful as not being able to ascertain,
Uncertainties are a lot like dark darkness, and the victim grope vainly in cloaked darkness,
breathing pure fear and exhaling crystal frustrations.
Uncertainties mercilessly clips the wings of a bird that is willing and ready to fly away.
Uncertainties kills a sure future, leaving behind a sore soul.
An empty shell.
