As a child, grownups said to me,

“There are no dumb questions.”

My childish mind believed

what they said. So my naturally curious

mind that held so many questions,

kept asking them. It appeared

that almost every question I asked

was the one adults considered stupid.

You think I would have learned, but with an

insatiable pursuit for my knowledge

to be satisfied and increased,

I kept asking questions.


Sometimes I’m not very quick with

my realizations; however, I finally

understood that to God

there were never any inane questions.

He always answered them, as if I am

His precious child.


I Praise You

My Creator,

My Father,

My Saviour  

Holy Spirit

for understanding my senior

mind’s childish need to continually

ask questions and never consider

them meaningless.

About the Poet
Michelle Angelini, aka Chelle, has been writing poetry for over 40 years. She has been published in many Southern California chapbooks and calendars. I am retired and dealing with my health issues. My Saviour, Jesus is always with me. God holds me within His wings. I am working slowly on a second book poetry and possibly my photography. And, I'm over 65 now and still loving it, even though my social life is not what it once was because of the painful fibromyalgia. It's quite frustrating, but I know Jesus still has "work" for me to do to show how much He blesses me.
