What is such an intriguing word
What makes children use it so much
What drives parents crazy when they hear it
What makes you jump when you don’t expect a touch.

What keeps you up at night
What causes you to stare off into space
What can be such a lonely word
What is it that makes your heart race.

What reason do we have to ask these things
What answers do we really seek to find
What is the most satisfying answer
What turns us from cruel to kind.

What is a word I have in my head
What am I waiting to have explained
What made you continue to read this ramble
What is next as we move on feeling unchained.

    Great poem; what answers do we seek; what makes us smile, what if there was no what, what would we do without family and friends and God; what makes us know without asking what? An amazing four letter word that can be simple or complex
