yes… in this uncertainty

yes… in this uncertainty
our voices are now softened.
the not knowing looms greater than fear.
we are at the edge of a precipice
with only wings of hope for flight.
but where will we fly to?
the sky is wide open
but will it receive us?
we long for a certainty
we have never known
but only imagined was so.
some of us are listening.
some of us are brave and
ready for the unknown.
a few of us have known
the suffering fear brings
and will suffer fear no longer.
we would rather die than to fear.
i am one of these solders of love
wielding one mercy; LOVE.
