But Why ??

why this?

why that?

tell me more

always asking

questioning, searching

relentless and restless

answers never bring closure

but only lead to more questions

oh this perpetual curse of the why

it’s a never-ending journey

the next why leads to the next

will it ever end?

the see-saw of life

back and forth

relentless like the wind and the waves

always battering at my minds doorway

it is never still

neither my mind nor the wind and waves

I think not even at death

when my ashes are to to be cast

into the wind and waves

they will for all eternity be battering

at someone’s doorway
