Why is life short?
Why are moments brief?
Why are there many questions –
That seem unanswered?
Why is there a disconnect,
Between dreams and realities?
Why is there hate and fear?
Why is there wickedness and evil?
Why is there poverty and hunger?
Ravaging the entire world
Why is there no equality and justice?
Why is there disdain for God?
Why does my strength fail?
And my might not tarry?

These and many more questions
Burdens a man’s soul
However, we seek to know
But when we know,
We fail to apply the knowledge we sought
We become obese with information
I hope we seek to apply
And apply to change the world
For therein lies the wisdom of asking

(c) Chukwudi I.
