Episode 226 - “Nature and Questions”

by Josephine Armar

There’s not always an answer.

I am British-Ghanaian, born and brought up in London, and currently located in Virginia. I have spent a lot of time in Ghana and speak 2 Ghanaian languages, as well as French and Spanish. I moved to the USA in 1986 to work for an international organization. An avid traveller, I have visited over 60 countries and love learning about different cultures. I started writing poetry and lyrics in primary school, often inspired by something I had seen, felt or heard, or, just because. And the words literally flow from my lips….

A Statement from Josephine:

"I wrote this poem in 2014 as I lay wide awake one night and found myself thinking about a host of things. Life appeared somewhat bleak, yet, when I looked out of the window the whole street was white. I hadn’t remembered it was supposed to snow and I was pleasantly surprised. Suddenly, I started wondering why things happen, and why we always want answers, yet how, sometimes, it’s really neither here nor there. Sometimes, not knowing is a gift.

It is an honour to have my poem featured in A Moment in Time. Funnily, I was browsing Backstage looking for auditions for acting roles, having decided when I retired in 2019 to pursue my dream to be an actress. I was intrigued by the description of the project, and its purpose, and I immediately thought of this particular poem, which, for me, is soothing and may speak to others and encourage them during these turbulent times."
