Answers - Poem by Julie Njoki

I frankly dnt kno whether i rly wanna do this,
i'l jst take my chances,
knowin only few of them r left,
bt only hope 4 th best.
Its nt lyk am th 1st one 2 do this,
nor wil i b the last 1.
If i do it know i'l get th answers so badly wantd.
I dnt evn wanna thnk of th -ve side of it,
wat if thngs don go as i expected or pland,
wil i b able 2 handle all the repercussions?
If i continue being a pessimist in this case,
it might as wel b written on my face.
Ths is jst 1 of th instances where i envy God,
he jst has al these answers,
answers tht wld rly change th world,
answers only kept as secrets in th deepest parts of our breasts,
answers no1 wld ever guess.
This is why i need 2 do this.
I jst want th answer 2 this 1 qstn tht my life depends on.
Plz God let it be th right one.
