    The Unknown – An Original Poem by Corra M.

    The unknown 

    Some people want to see what is out there

    Some examples:

    Scientists 

    Astronauts

    Marine biologists 

    But others are scared of the unknown

    What if it is dangerous

    What if we don’t like what is out there

    I am one of these people

    The unknown is terrifying 

    If something is fine the way it is then why try to change it

    The unknown is unpredictable 

    What if something goes wrong and nothing will be the same again

    The unknown is dangerous

    And I am heading right towards it

    “Why do we have to move here?”

    I asked my mother who was driving the car

    “Because it will be a better environment for you to grow up in.” 

    She replied while still looking at the road

    We pulled up to the unknown

    The school

    “You will be fine honey.” 

    My mom tried to encourage me

    It didn’t work

    I got out and went into the unknown

    I walked up to the school and opened the door

    The unknown is terrifying

    I was looking for my first class when a girl my age skipped over to me

    “Hi!”

    “Hey.”

    “Are you new here?”

    “Yeah, why.”

    “You just looked like you needed a friend.” 

    Did I?

    The unknown was suppose to be terrifying

    It was supposed to be dangerous

     “Ummm, yeah I guess I could go for a friend.” 

    “Great! My name is Emily.”

    “My name is Ashley.”

    After that the unknown didn’t look as scary

    The unknown isn’t terrifying, it is new

    The unknown isn’t dangerous, it is an opportunity to learn

    The unknown isn’t unpredictable, it is exciting 

    The unknown is beautiful.
