WHY?

 

WHY

BY BRONSE BAKER

 

 There aren’t any answers

I thought they would come to me

Or I would be told

When I was small

You said when you’re older

But I’m older, much older

And there aren’t any answers

The original question was correct

Kids still ask it

I still ask it

Religion doesn’t answer it

Science can’t find it

Authority won’t address it

Graves and spirits know

There aren’t any answers

Just the wind

I still want to know

Why, why everything

Why, why

 Why Am I?
