you know the answer

 

a storm
that just hovers
above
even on the brightest day
the storm clouds stay
just enough
to leave a chill
and a dampness on the skin
leaving the question
always hanging
why
why
why does the burden
lay so heavy
why
why
why does the heart
never seem to heal
why
why
why does the body
seem hefty
when no weight has been gained
why
why
why can’t one find the answer
in the never emptying bottle

 

negativity can be infectious
adhering to all surfaces it touches
sticking and clinging
creating a rash
with a never-ending itch

scratch
go ahead scratch
get beyond the surface
how deep is the infection

 

why
why
why is that not satisfying

is this merely an allergic reaction
a hypersensitivity to negativity

 

change your clothes
change your attitude
create a solution
it’s in the execution

here’s an umbrella
for shade
the storm shall pass away

what is the real query
you know the answer
