You know what question
Gets under my skin?
What part of left
Becomes right again?
Also how much sky touches the ground
Or how much upright is upside down?
How much red is found in blue?
How much desert is covered in dew?
What about laughing that turns into a frown
Or how secretly unhappy are whimsical clowns?
Does it really matter how much a hen weighs?
Or how many hours add up to days?
How loud and heavy is a plop?
How many flips are in a flop?
Why are people different than they seem?
Why don’t we ever see grape ice cream?
Who has the job of inspecting my flight?
Who invented the original kite?
All of these things swirl in my head
And make me toss and turn in my bed
But…the answer to all of these
Will never change the earth
Nor will the constant worry
We have experienced from birth
So take a moment to calm your mind
And leave your concern far behind
You don’t really have to be the one
To know all the answers under the sun
Take a breath.
Go to sleep.
Your day is complete.
Even though slumber sounds like an impossible feat.
