Why … Why Not? - Poem by Rosmin Elsa Mohan

The Why leads to the Why not
Answers to, desperately sought.
The nature, the source, the outcome
One's prejudice to sulk wholesome.
The wallet to forever seem leaking,
The neighbor who never stops peeping
A life so long; tagged with bills,
A wife who cries; by the window sill.

The Why leads to the Why Not?
Answers to, desperately sought.

Seconds those leave behind no trail
Decades those tread in futile sail
Ideas that change the mark en face
Only to ponder upon the true preface
The quest to never root, nor die
The answer to which; again a Why.

The Why leads to the Why not?
Answers to, desperately sought.


The gentle boy to the sturdy man
Tongues that sound- I will, I can
Confidence to bold out the Why again
Overconfidence, the Why not - in vain.
Coins in scarce, the Why to head
Coins profound, Why not instead?
Even in comfort of mansion domes
Concrete to cremate nostalgic homes

The Why not to Why palindrome.

The Why leads to the Why not,
Answers to, desperately sought.
