The Unknown ~ A 100-word essay

Updated on May 15, 2012
"One Sunday Morning"
"One Sunday Morning" | Source

To remain in the dark or step into the light. She pondered the thought as she kicked up dust with a bright green flip-flop. The dark is soothing and comfortable, but the light can be, too. The light can show all that is ugly. The dark hides all imperfections. Monsters lurk in the dark. The light shows their teeth and scary faces. Better to know. Or not. Lightness touches the tip of her flip-flop. To move or stand still. She waits. The unknown is right around the bend. Her life may change or may stay the same. She is scared.

      Voted up and awesome. Sometimes it is better to overcome our fears and march straight forward because otherwise we can miss so much or miss a very important chance at something.

      So impassioned - yes, the uncertainty of going down that indeterminate path or "around that bend," and the solemnity of it all!!! Loved reading this piece, and your own photo is just the obvious choice for this write. I love that you are so versatile in your writings. In His Love, Faith Reaper
