Questions without answers

Post by Abigail09 »

How did I get here?
What’s the way forward?
Where do I go from here?
Who do I trust with my heavy burden?
Who do I show my true self to?
Why can’t I get things easily?
All these questions pop into my head and
I discovered after searching through me that,
I don’t have a specific answer for each of the questions
Life sometimes throws on us questions we can’t get definite answers to..
So we are left with “what if’s”
We are left with Questions without answers



Please read and comment .What would you have added or removed from this short poem?

Questions without answers
shouldn't every question have an answer?
we were taught that you ask and
you get an answer
we grow up and find out
not every question have an answer
what's wrong with life?
is it just me or everyone feel the same?
life is a mess
I am a mess with all my unanswer questions

Are there unanswered questions?
Do we just not know where to look?
Or who to ask.
Or are we just stubbornly refusing to acknowledge the answers all around us?
What if we already know the answers and we only say they have no answer so that we can avoid acting on them?

We were taught too many wrong answers to questions we didn't ask.
We were told to trust the lies and feed the liars.
But the liars told us that the questions that we want answers for can not be answered.
They are afraid of the questions.
Questions lead to change.
The world is a mess.
But I have questions.


I wouldn't add or remove anything.
It's an expression of your own thoughts, and I don't see an issue with it. 👍

I think this is excellent! The only thing I would change is probably take out the that before me. It would make it run smoother. Your writing has a good point that not all of our questions get answered and I like that.

I would add: which way should I go and what options do I have. Those questions I ask myself and I am yet to find the answers that I need. It's a good piece of writing and add more lines and chapters per say.

illusion and fantasy are two things that are in one dimension, where we cannot answer and explain literally if we are trapped in these two things

This is good, but I think the 2nd and 3rd question are very similar so maybe choose just one of them. :)
