how many hours
spent explaining
why and how
and why again
why am I
this way
how do I
that way.
no answer is complete
no reason enlightens
to make the questions stop.
Stop asking
or see me walk away, still
to do what
and why

I don't see any reason to explain to anyone "why" as it
#1 has no bearing on anything
#2 ain't anyone else's concern
#3 just wastes your valuable time that could be spent doing what you have to do.

Tell them to "step off", eh?

Took me many years to reach those conclusions, Berry. Feels good not to do that anymore.

Joan of Argghh! said...

OH! I heard THAT all the way up here!


Jean said...

heh, Joan.
Perhaps I should admit that I am often the one questioning myself.

Doom said...

But what do you do when it is you asking yourself? I do wonder. I almost wish my mind had an on and off switch and a system by which I could guide it.

Why you ask? :p Never.

Mind. :)

It's your path. No one else can walk it but yourself.
Your own Darlin' Miss Jean self.

Jean said...

Doom, I've just spent a lot of time questioning myself. And berating myself. I think controlling the brain is one difficult thing to do.

aw, Larry. Thank you.
But, you know how people try to get other people to take advice whether asked for or not. No one is right but them. They make me crazy.

kdzu said...

Yeah, I know. I'm one of those always right people who dispenses words of wisdom at the drop of a hat.
Trouble is most people just want you to hear them bitch, not offer a workable solution to the problem.
So, I just dispense lots less of the wisdom, and, wish them well in their adversity.

Jean said...

I always think of you as thoughtful, considerate and wise.

kdzu said...

Awww, thanks Darlin'. You're prolly biased, but thanks.

I'm late again reading posts!

I do like "Enough" Jean and if I can read between the lines I think we are perhaps alike. Alike enough to question all but then to march to our own tune.

This has come with age for me and no questions will ever be answered about what I do, for the rest of my days.I have paid my dues so now I will march entirely to my own tune. Rather nice I feel all this feedom. Hugs.

Jean said...

I question constantly, Susie.
And, I am stubborn, which makes marching to my own tune easier (at times).
You and I could be birds of a feather.
