Please Tell Me
Please tell me what all of this means!
It's confusion and pain with in my brain.
Wrapping its tentacles around my shines pulling me deeper and deeper into it.
None of it makes sense,
like when you take time to ponder why you would price something a $1.01.
None of it makes sense.
Why can't you explain this to me?
Why can't you tell me why?
The confusion it hurts too much to even wonder!
So why?
Tell me why do I sit her and wonder.
Why do I sit her and cry the tears of oil that leak from the old broken down Chevy in the driveway?
Why do I hurt as if a had been tied by barbed wire and dragged behind a car, its exhaust fumes filling my lungs.
What does it mean?
Why doesn't it make any sense!
Why can't you tell me this simple life saving fact?
Why are you the only one that gets to live?

Quote"The confusion it hurts too much to even wonder!
So why?"

I think you might enjoy a book by Kahlil Gibran. It's called "The Prophet".
He delves beautifully into some of these questions. The image I always remembered from this book is that of corn, which is collected at the harvest in a violent manner. Scythes, etc. Then threshed, to get the seeds out. More violence. Then taken to the miller, to be ground into flour. More bad stuff happening to the poor corn seeds.Then thrown into the oven, and baked red hot.
A real rough ride!

But what comes out?

Gibran describes it as the "sacred bread".

You see his point? All that violence, burning, pain..... to create something beautiful, good, and essential.  Smile

We little humans, hurtling through the Universe on our tiny, pale blue dot, will find few answers to Life's great mysteries. But we should at least find many of the questions. To write is to ask. To seek. To grope. With humility, and humor. Peace.
