Are We There Yet?
We question our future, when, where, how?
We question everything? An interrogation?
Questioning reality, questioning the questions?
How can we continue with the monotony of this existence?
Are our urges now without frontiers?
Much posturing and pandering; let’s discern what’s true, no?
When will we get answers to our questions?
Is this impossible and inevitable?
Is this a nightmare? Perhaps just a figment of my imagination?
Dreams are just destiny and luck? Follow your dreams?
Are dreams fluff and mist, or just beyond our fingertips?
Is this pain in my chest a lonely heart or a symptom of something else?
I can see love, but when will I feel loves connection??
Why not be happy now?
Will our tomorrows bring more sighs and sadness or joy and cheers?
I know the past, but what will this new day bring?
When will my old endings become my new beginnings?
If we question all the answers, how will we answer any question?
Does everything I write have to be profound, or is there room for irreverence?
We’re all Scots now with upward inflection?
What time is the Seniors’ Early entry Line at Trader Joe’s?
Why am I hungry all day all the time?????
Enjoying the lovely spring weather in San Francisco,
but wondering when this pandemic will end?
Original prompt: One line of poetry ending on a question?
