Why?
A simple question,
I want a simple answer.
Why did he leave?

Who?
A hard question,
without an answer.
Who will hear me now?

When?
A question waiting
for an answer.
When will I see him again?

How?
A question waiting
to be answered.
How will someone take his place?

What?
A question I wonder
will ever be answered.
What do I do now
when i feel alone in this world?

Where?
A question that everyone gets answered,
but me.
Where should I go for shelter?

He left
without saying goodbye.
He hugged me
when nobody else did.

My brother.
My blood.
