“The Question is…” – Makati, 24 July 2017

inevitable questions
without
any answers;
heartbroken wail
keening
through the
silence;
an emptiness
we peer
into
that has
no end
in sight.

on and
on
we demand:
why him
why her
why them
why me
why then
why now
why –
always why.

but
no answers
come;
no answers
offered
and we
live
our lives
scratching
bewildered heads
running
away from
possibilities
because we
fear
the unknown.
