Simon Odhiambo


I Don't Know


Questions are asked and questions answered
But there is this one question
that bothers me every day

In the morning I ponder
about this one question
It is not a difficult one, it should be simple
Every time I think and feel I have the answer

The afternoon comes, the question still lingers
I strongly feel it is not a difficult one
This one question, bothers me daily
No answer so far, Yet simple it seems

Evening creeps in un-noticed and I sigh
Maybe darkness will come with an answer
The answer to this simple question
That bothers me day in, day out

I fall asleep, with the question blinking in my mind
Maybe...yes maybe, the answer is in my dream
but I dream not tonight, for there is no sleep in my eyes
As I think about this one question

What is this question?
And the answer?

That is not the question, It still remains:

Unasked
Unanswered

This question is the answer to my question
And it still bothers me

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
