Hard Questions

It may seem so simple

inquiring minds want to know

why not and how come

when and what and where

hard questions

without any

easy answers

at least not the kind

any one really wants to know

it’s far better if she tells it

a different way

sugar coat

save face

a little white lie 

that doesn’t give away

too much 

cold hard truth

If she could

oh,she would

answer all the hard questions

by giving easy answers

cut and dry

simple as that

first thing that comes to mind

shooting straight.

from the hip

but she just can’t 

do it just yet

it’s not quite

her time

and she’s learned

the hard way

that most people

just can’t take

the way she is

or the answers she gives

it’s as simple as that

and the simple answer

to all the hard questions

stays within her.
