If you could look into the future,
how many eyes would you need?
For surely two
just wouldn’t do
to see all there is to see?

And to comprehend the future
would you need an extra mind?
For one brain alone
would have its circuits blown
through computing what it finds.

So perhaps it’s just as well
we let the future be;
That none can know
which way it’ll go –
it’s unknown to you and me.

In fact,
I bet that in reality
there wouldn’t be
anything there to see…

(Inspired by #MadVerse prompt ‘Unknown’)

I love words; both reading and writing them. I've started this site in order to have a depository for all the random ramblings which are continually swirling around my mind. Some of the aforementioned ramblings may be quite serious but the majority probably won't be. I'm a single mother living in Norwich. I'm also autistic. This isn't the defining component of my personality, although it is a significant one, and one which I think has a heavy influence on my writing, which is why I choose to highlight it. I also feel no shame over being autistic and refuse to perceive it as a disability. The way I see it, life is hard work whichever way your brain is wired up. Aside from all things wordy, I also love music. I find it to be an incredible mood enhancer, as well as a great enabler for the imagination. I love all kinds of music, though hard house in particular - as everything in life is better when it's hard... I hope you enjoy my musings and thank you for reading!
