Probabilities

We are leaving the age of certainty

We are leaving what we thought we knew

We are questioning our concepts of reality

“Because it’s always been that way” no longer holds true

 Now the past is an unreliable predictor of the future

We are leaving the comfort of the known

We are entering the realm of possibilities

Which manifests the probability:

That the sun will rise tomorrow

That our hearts will go on beating

That there will be food in the refrigerator

and a roof over our heads.

Even though the light from some stars we see

has already gone out.
