QUESTIONABLE

If it's not nonsense, What is it ?
If we give it meaning, Will it follow us home ?
Can we keep it ? Do we have to feed it ?
And just what is IT ?
When we sense impending doom,
Do we duck and hide, Maybe it will go away ?
Or do we stand up and take it ?
When we find it, Will we know how to use it ?
Or do we just stand in the middle of the road ?
Waiting to get hit,
If we question life, The meaning of life, From the source,
Will we be pleased with the answers or just remorse ?
Only to carry on as if, Regretting every bit,
The standards fly in the wind,
Pointing in so many directions,
Do we know which ones to follow ?
Will we enjoy the trip enough to do it again,
Would we follow the same path again ?
If there are so many ifs and whens,
Where can we possibly go ? And why?????


Richard E. Cartledge ? Phoenix

And thats the crust of it.........the answer we all seek no matter what language we may speak........it all comes down to why?

All of these questions we all ask at one time or another . But you can swim if you dont get in the water loved the poem my friend . Great work Marie

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
