Questioning

The Trifextra 33 word weekend prompt was to pick any word and use that exact same word (no modifying it) 3 times in those 33 words.  The inspiration for these 33 words is a kid I've worked on and off with at work for a while.  This kid struggles with these questions on a regular basis regardless of what anyone has tried to say.  It just breaks my heart.


Why do you love me?
Why do you choose to love me?
When all is said and done
The day is over
And everyone else has left
Why do you still love me?


Be sure to head over to Trifecta Writing Challenge to see what others came up with for their thrice repeated word in 33 words.

  1. Those are the most pointed questions in the history of the world, and for some those are the only questions that matter. Beautiful!

    I am not participating in Trifecta this weekend, but I'm reading!

    1. And, for some, the answers are not enough to stop those questions. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. How sad to have such insecurity in the worthiness to be loved. I hope one day the child believes he/she is loved.

    1. I know. My co-worker and I have been working with him on this. It's been a long road, but I think we're finally starting to make some progress. Still such a heartbreaking situation. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Sometimes the question needs to be asked. I actually read a kind of wonder and joy in this, not sadness. What a great piece.

    1. I can see that. It wasn't what I intended, thinking of the particular kid I had in mind, but I can see that side of it too. Interesting view of this. Thanks for bringing a different perspective.
