There are whys that can be answered by science…

Why is the sky blue?

Why do we have different seasons?

Why don’t I float away into space?

There are whys that children ask…

Why can’t I stay up later?

Why do I have to eat my vegetables?

Why do I have to do my homework?

There are whys that we ask ourselves…

Why did I do that?

Why am I so tired?

Why didn’t I do that earlier?

There are whys that can’t be answered…

Why do bad things happened to good people?

Why do people act the way they do?

Why can’t the world be a kinder place?

Then there are the whys that you ask during the Slice of Life Challenge…

Why did I sign up for this?

Why can’t I think of anything to Slice about?

Why did I wait so long to sit down and Slice today?

It’s okay to ask yourself those whys.  You are not the only Slicer asking.

We all get frustrated.  We all struggle with ideas.  But we all are proud of what we create.  And we all are happy to share our ideas with our peers.


Why join the Slice of Life Challenge?

Why not?

Happy Slicing!!!

  1. This is awesome! I love the format of the questions – and the twist truly spoke to me. I had just finished asking myself those questions about slicing! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Love the lightness and simplicity of your post. My favorite line is “But we are all proud of what we create.” Writing is such a vulnerable act and the Slice of Life community makes putting slices out into the universe so much easier.

  3. The way repetition in your poem is lovely and the bolding of the word “why” is a nice craft mood. I love the playful nature of this poem. I’m also a new slicer and looking forward to anwering “why” by the end! 🙂
