If You Could Shop For Answers
What would your list consist of?
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
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.
