Why Oh Why

Poem By Vicky Biorseth

Why ask why when there is no one to answer
Why ask 'Why oh Why' are we here?
Keep your questions for someone with interest
Careful to ask when the answer you fear
Ask inside the questions that riddle
Do not look elsewhere for what's already known
Answer your own questions big questions little
You're full of interest when others have none
Our eyes often look to another for meaning
But meaning of what, and for who I must ask
Inside our own spirit the answers are teaming
There is but one question left, 'Are you up to the task? '

Only Teasing

My spirit is on its knees
My will is willing to give up
My heart is unrecognizable, bludgened, bleeding, bruised and broken
Years of seaching...for What?

Go Away

I know you are walking away from me I know that it is time
I know you are trustworthy and that you will be fine
This feels like a barb being ripped from my chest
Of all the things or people in my life you have been the best


I can see Pain coming-he is on his way
Not here yet, he moves slowly, in no hurry
Pain looks like a big black blob-no real form
White beaty eyes and a black thin, smirky grin

A Good Son

Forgive me for yelling-it probably wasn't necessary
Forget the years I drank-that would be a gift
Allow me to love you my way-that will make you sweet
Love me inspite of my flaws-that will make you tolerant
