Little Judy questions

(Sorry, Mom.  I can’t make all of them rhyme!)

Sad little child wonders:

Why?

She does not dig

that why doesn’t matter

at all.  She will be decades

getting

the idea that knowing

why never

helped her in the past.

Once that hard moment

was over, she

believed that if she knew,

could catch on to the reason

things happened

the way they did,

maybe she wouldn’t hurt so badly

all the time.

Forty years pass

before she sees the vital question

is How?

How was she to survive the endlessness,

the insanity

of so much of her past?
