Questions. Often we think very little of them. We let them frazzle us; we refuse to answer them; we even refuse to ask them. We see them as annoying or a hindrance to our lives. But to question may just be the single handedly most important verb we can do. Questions allow the unknown to be explored. And the possibilities of the unknown are endless. We can discover parts of ourselves we didn’t know. We can think critically about the world around us. We can even learn more about others, or help them discover something new.
But if we don’t ask, then what are we doing? If things aren’t questioned, will they change? Or how will new things be discovered? Change starts with a question. So if you’re stuck, ask. If you want to discover something new, ask. Go down a road you’ve never gone before. Learn something new. Because why not?
Likewise, don’t be afraid to answer, even if that means looking deep inside yourself. Discover who you are as a person. You might just like what you find.
I am my own person
(mostly) unhindered by the world in which I live
a web of tangled strings tug at my heart
but never asking
this poison seeps through the vessels and veins in my body
in an attempt to affect and effect
the person I (have become) am
those who tell rather than ask are no longer their own person
their lives hindered by the world about them
crushed by a society that tries to same
into one unified person
don’t be afraid to ask
and don’t be afraid to be the person you were meant to be
the person you are
