31 Mini Muses: Day 10

This prompt is from Kaileen Elise, who’s picking up the Reverb torch and carrying it forward with 31 Mini Muses, a prompt-a-day for December, in which I’m participating.

What questions did you ask?

A thousand variations of why: why me, why now, why this, why not, why then, why that, why why why.

The closest I’ve ever gotten to an answer was through reading When Bad Things Happen to Good People by Harold Kushner. If you’re also struggling, it might help. I’ll be reading it again soon—I need its salve once more.
