“I’m surprised.”

What a strange phrase that transcends

The best and worst moments of our lives.

“I’m surprised.”

Such a statement

Can never be enough

To describe the emotions

That flood our beings

When we uncover what we used to hide.

“I’m surprised.”

Oh, how that phrase

Can awaken excitement, fear,

Push our heart rate up,

And slow our wandering mind down.

But, oh, how that phrase,

Fails to prepare you for what comes next.

“I’m surprised.”

This discovery has done us both wrong.

But, oh, how this surprise

Elicits fresh emotions from our eyes.
