What - Poem by hannah wilbert

There are so many questions I don't have the answers to
And no one can tell me why
The things that I ask them are true
Or false or for many cases undefined.

No one seems to know the why and whats of life
There are many more than few
But my favorites are the ones that no one seems to be able to answer
The ones that take a little thinking through
The ones that show the characteristics of the person telling the answers
Through and through

The ones that puzzle and baffle us
Evan the brightest has no clue
Things that cant really be defined on paper or in a book
But must be experienced by the person and yet the story can be told with one look
Things like

What is love and how come it can't last half the time?
What are feelings and what are they really caused by?
Why do people hate and why must people die?
What is the thing that has gotten us this far in life?
What is the thing that unites us together?
In this circle of life what brings us together?

    Interesting questions raised in this poem. I doubt that everyone can answer all of them easily. But I will try. Love is defined by different people according to their perceptions. Why it does not last is down to the individual. Feelings are caused by chemicals released in to the brain. Hate can be caused by many things like fear, guilt, anger and embarrassment. Why do people die? ? According to many people there has to be a balance: life and death, hate and love, day and night, predator and prey. According to the second law of thermodynamics, all things wear out including the human body. I will answer the other two another time. Stay strong and keep writing. (Report) Reply
