Poetry Spotlight

Autumn Mason, Writer


Who knows

What’s there

Behind the stair

It lurks, waiting

The fear of it stumbling

Or is it the fear that trips, stumbles all

Who knows




What a thing

It inspires us all

To fear, to go beyond

It is everywhere

In everything and nothing all the same

It causes us to flounder, to reach

Causes us to discover, to reach

Oh so scary, a thing it is

Oh so terrifying to not know

Is that the fear, the allure, of mystery?

To know?

Oh how hungry we are, oh so desperate we are

For knowing, for knowledge, for truths

Is that it

I do not know

What a thing indeed
