Poem of the Utmost Importance

I have to say something

I have to tell you something.

I have to show you something.

But you’ll have to follow me to find it.

It’s a secret that I stumbled upon

tripping over one of those annoying repressed memories.

No need to check in your emotional baggage.

You’ll have more when you leave.

Plus, its all free anyway.

Wait, I’m sorry.

Did you have a question?

Ha, how comical that you expect an answer!

That’s the great irony.

That’s what I had to say,

tell,

show

you

THAT

it doesn’t matter.

It does not matter what questions you ask

or which get answered

Because really, how many actually have answers?

What matters is….
