Wonder

Hifza reflects on common things that dictate human nature and the world as we know it.


As I stand before you

I wonder why

all is that it is

why the hope is so bright

when the world is so dark

I wonder why

the little bird stays in its perch

when it could easily

go anywhere on earth

I wonder why

rainbows only

appear after it rains

why the calm only comes

after the storm

I wonder why

you can’t know joy

without knowing sorrow

why anyone plays the game

knowing there’s no way to win
