To every insight in the world
There is a question that precedes it.
Questions that refuse to disappear
Which rankle us like a stone
Inside our shoes
Or irritate us like a mosquito bite
Just ask the question
And relief will dull the pain.
Questions of doubting and questions of believing
Questions of living and questions of dying
Questions of searching and questions of discovering
Questions of writing and questions of speaking
Questions of children and questions of parents
Questions of praying and questions of silence
Questions of tearing garments and questions of sewing garments
Questions of humility and questions of pride
Questions of fear and questions of faith
Questions of Jews and questions of others
Questions of God and questions of questions
Questions of forgiveness and question of stubbornness
Questions of returning and questions of leaving
Do we ever tire of asking questions?
Remember that answers are no better
For your life is a tapestry of questions
No longer fearing them
But embracing the possibility of being
And it is this reality
That is your calling.
Are you ready?
