Question Mark ?

July 18, 2020


A question mark
Standing firm,
Defending it’s ground

A question mark
That it will never allow itself to become a full stop
Not till its questions are answered!

But slowly
So slowly that it doesn’t even notice
The question mark is becoming more flexible

Slowly, ever so slowly … it is unraveling
Its bends and edges get straightened out,
The curves become gentler

And the question mark becomes
A line at first, then the line becomes a dot …
Till – one day –
The dot disappears all together

Leaving empty space
Nothing but openness
Freedom …

Freedom from questions
Freedom from answers…
Just this…
