Instability, uncertainty, no clarity,
About the now and later,
About life going helter skelter
All actions and decisions lay in obscurity
Instability, uncertainty, no clarity

There’s confusion, there’s dread,
Holding life together with a thread
In you, among others, there’s insecurity
Causing instability, uncertainty, no clarity

The feeling that all will be lost
Your success, your posessions, everything, will be tossed
It’s called being tensed that happens in moments of severity,
Leading to instability, uncertainty, no clarity

Note: With this poem in the emotive poetry series, I have experimented with the Dansa Poetry form to define the associated emotion.


I’m participating in #BlogchatterA2Z and this post is the twentieth one corresponding to the alphabet ‘T’. Know more about the challenge and my theme here. See you tomorrow with the next alphabet and a poem around another human emotion.
