Two raindrops race down a window.

I look on, as I try to predict where they will connect and become one.

I sneeze, my eyes shut.

I’ve lost them.

The idea of not knowing if they connected or simply continued their own respective path irritates me.

I am six years old and the world owes me answers.

Why this?

Why that?

It’s my right to know.

 

A, B, C

Or

D

What kind of choices are these?

None make sense.

But two could be right.

I am seventeen and my options suck.

 

All the answers at my fingertips.

My fingers clicking away at the keyboard

I am twenty-five years old and the questions don’t come as easily as they once did.

 

We spend our lives chasing answers only to forget what the questions were; and why they were asked.
