I Don’t Have A Clue, Do You?

17 May

Why are there stars in the nighttime sky?
When people are happy, why do they cry?
Will I always be caught if I tell a lie?
And what’s so great about blueberry pie?
Why is it hard to say goodbye?
I don’t have a clue, do you?

There are lots of questions that simply defy
attempts to answer the troublesome “why”?
I live in an era of “me”, “mine”, and “my”.
No matter how deftly or wisely I try
my efforts all end in a shrug and a sigh.
I don’t have a clue, do you?

I try so hard but I get nowhere.
I fully believe that life isn’t fair.
If I step outside to get some fresh air
a bumblebee will nest in my hair!
I wonder if the universe cares?
I don’t have a clue, do you?

Good people suffer, bad people win,
and there’s no way we can start all over again.
What can we do except to pretend
that the universe is a faithful friend?
That I am absolved of something called sin?
I don’t have a clue, do you?

My hope is not beyond the sky.
I cast my lot with a man who tried
to banish the law of “an eye for an eye”.
He was willing to stand and bravely defy
our voracious needs to gratify
the darkness that lives within.

I don’t have a clue, do you
about why his ways appeal as they do?
I simply acknowledge his path to be true
and offer his friendship and presence to you.
But…maybe, in fact, I do have a clue.
Maybe his way is an opening to
the chance to discover the real me, real you.
I think I’ve found the mysterious clue…do you?
