Poem: “Is there an exact moment you can recall?”

“Is there an exact moment you can recall?”

That one encounter,

That one book,

That one thought,

“Which one shifted your mind?”

That one touch,

That one feeling,

That one question,

“Which made you doubt all that you know?”

That one hope,

That one desire,

That one dream

“For which you’d give up all other ones?”

“This one is full of struggle”

“This one is full of obstacles”

“This one is full of hardships”

Said in hushed whispers.

“I know”

Said with acknowledgment

“I know”

Said with acceptance

“I know”

Said with pride

“When did it all change?”

Anima asked.

“When I saw death”

He replied.
