Why?

SFoxWriting’s Alphabet Challenge ~ “W”

Why?
In all the galaxies
Universe wide,
Every star that lives,
Every star that’s died,
In all the worlds
That circle a sun,
Of those solar systems,
We occupy this one.
On all the continents
Across our planet,
In every country,
Countless do inhabit,
Generations past,
Or not yet conceived,
Every birth celebrated,
Or each death we’ve grieved,
Only you are you,
And this is your time,
An existence barely measurable
In the scope of mankind.
Do you consider it
When you look at the sky?
Do you ponder the unlikelihood
And ask yourself why?

  1. insightful and beautiful, you have a great way with words. I look forward to more of your work.

    On a side note, this poem actually feels something more like a rap, have you ever tried reciting your poetry in that style ?

    1. Thank you so much! I appreciate the kind words.

      My husband and I did turn a poem into a song, but not a rap. I would love to hear someone who can actually rap recite one of my poems though.

  2. too many secrets of universe
    and all those are in your eyes
    I do wonder about stars
    but not which are in skies
    tell me all about the dreams
    you see
    and all the secrets you hide
    Why would I wonder about death
    or how much do I live
    while all I can do
    is give reigns in your hand
    and look for answers
    in your smile

            1. I’m trying to increase the number of posts I make too. I’ve decided to add regular posts about the local art scene to my blog. It doesn’t detract from the theme at all. Plus it will give me the opportunity to promote my hometown artists and musicians, and to maybe draw in some of their followers.
