If You Could Shop For Answers

If You Could Shop For Answers

Imagine walking through a store

Strolling down the aisles

Picking out items to fill your cart of whys

*

The aisle of how is bare

Some products are out of stock

You leave disappointed

You failed to acquire the materials you want

*

You scan your list of questions

Focusing on when and where

You roll your cart to the other side

Hoping that you will find something left

*

You search through the shelves

Unable to find your desired product

Leaving disappointed

Better luck in the aisles of who or what

*

Surprised by the many items present

One by one, you fill your cart

Happy that you didn’t leave empty-handed

You proceed to the checkout

*

In life, there are questions

Some answers we will find

For others, we have to accept

That they may never be solved in our lifetime

*********************

If you pay attention to your conversations and thoughts throughout the day, you will realize that you ask questions. You may be surprised by the number. Examples include:

• How are you?

• What time is it?

• Where are my keys?

• What should I have for lunch today?

• Why is there so much traffic at this time?

• What is the weather like today?

There isn’t a day when we do not seek answers which we usually obtain readily. Others may require research. It could pertain to our jobs or school.
