Forewarned, Forearmed (Unknown Knowns).

You hold
more than you can bear
and you are breaking.

Shattered, shards rain
down, leaving lacerations
stretching across
soft, ever-sensitive skin.

When will you thicken
it? Build up callous
to act as armor

for what you know
is coming?

Forewarned,
forearmed:

though you must embrace
what are presently
unknown knowns.
