Why

Written by: Debra Squyres

It begs an answer
though often unanswered
to know or not to know
leaves more questions

Acceptance screams why
more often than not
Till the water runs out
the tea pot shouts

Sips too hot
Sips too cold
Tea in the teapot
leaves swirling bold

Knowing not
the when and how
Accepting His Grace
here and now

It's not about the tea
nor the birds or the bees
It is simply life
with all its strife
