How Can It Be So?

How can I be both blessed and cursed

With this pressing need to express myself?

Do others take the time to to look about

Questioning the imponderable ‘Why or How’

Of simple things and complex things

And things for which there is no reasonable

Excuse for them to be?

It worries me that I forever question

What so many others take for granted.

I fixate on the curious nature

Of probabilities, or the ‘why and wherefore’

Of how the world unfolds as it does.

Should I not close my eyes to these distractions,

Get on with life and living?

Is that not enough and

Why should I be seeking more?

I derive such pleasure in chasing down

The motives of nature’s endless schemes.

It is all a game and I want to know

How can it be so?
