Uncomfortable questions

Questions

Like knife marks on teenage skin

Scars forming

Where I asked the wrong things

Yet I am endlessly curious

So I will ask again

Knowing

That some answers will hurt me

But the alternative

Is ignorance

Which is untenable

To a mind that seeks

Growth

And “I”

Isn’t nearly as important

As it used to be

Which is of course

A good thing

And worth the loss of skin

To one intent on cutting through the glib

Frivolity

Of false living

And finding truth

As a way of being

One thought on “Uncomfortable questions
