QUESTIONS

We always ask questions, Of ourselves,
Of the people we know, Looking for answers,
Questions without answer so it seems,
Can we be sure what they are, True or not,
We start out young, what will we be when we grow up,
They ask us when we are six and again when we are 26,
Do we really know the answer or just a guess,
We find out that love is the most powerful emotion,
But sometimes we find that hate takes it's place,
Our teachers try to tell us, Form us in their image,
Society fits us in by the answers we give,
To the questions we have been programed with,
Yet they tell us to open our minds to expand,
And we ask our selves, What do we want,
What do you want, Really,
Only you can answer that question if you know,
But my question i have lately is one of a paradox,
If the good die young, WHAT ARE WE..........

Good question! I needed to read this poem. As we grow older we under the answers to many questions in life.

I especially like this write because it makes us examine the fact that we have been programmed in certain ways. We don't always realize until we have to give an answer. What about future generations?

I like this poem very much. If we always had the right answers to every question in our lifes there would be no need to ever ask questions. If we had all the answers then we would be perfect and no one is perfect. questions help us build who we are and I find reason everyday to ask new question of myself, am I getting better and it always seems I am. Thank you for this reminder Thanks Jen

We are the better ones who keep all others going . Loved the poem and the flow was great thanks Marie

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
