The Unknown - Poetry by Yvonne Perry

The Unknown

It's called that for a reason
known to undo familiarity
known to be uncomfortable

Known to be different
than the hum of the humdrum
that drums me into complacency
the beat of conformity
that marches me in predictable circles
around the flag pole
that holds the banner of codependency
expectation and status quo

What if the unknown were better than the known
Would I stay here and play it safe?
Or, would I spread my wings and fly?

(c) 2013 Yvonne Perry
