Wh? y Question What Appears


Wh? y question what appears apparent and obvious.
With the hope that a doing clears,
To weaken the strength of an influence done.
And fears kept to go on to feel with them claimed,
Remains until a prescription provides...
The right pill to numb what is denied inside.
Yet the wh? y unchanged maintains to mark their pain!

Questions residing in the mind to wonder wh? y,
Without facing the condition of the facts one hides...
Provokes other folks with mental scars that leave,
Traces of a sickness they make no attempt to free.
And fears kept to go on to feel with them claimed,
Remains until a prescription provides...
The right pill to numb what is denied inside.
