In Some Amazing Way

The sweep of this
Is beyond our ability
To measure

We are not capable
Of encapsulating
The full meaning...

Of what we are about to encounter...

Within the small packages
Of the concepts
That define
How we think things will be

Just as the world of 1939
Could not conceive
Of the holocaust to come

Just as those living in 1939
Could not conceive
Of their own imminent deaths

We cannot know
Where the present
Drumbeat
Will lead

And yet

Somewhere...

In the gray mist of unknowing

Within the small spaces
Between our concepts

There is a hint of knowledge...

About...

What is to come

Violence
Loss
And sadness?
