Nishiken - Why?

Why do I have to find this something? I thought Why is it so important? Another question I had no answer to. Why am out here in the forest anyway? Who knows. Who am I and what am I supposed to be doing?  Hmmm...For some reason, I do not know these things. But for some reason that did not seem very important, at least not as important as I thought it ought to.  It was like the need to find Something was so important every thing else seemed pale in comparison. Hmm...why is that? I wondered.  But, as hard as I tried, I could not figure out what Something was, or why I needed to find it.  And why is that?  Why am I?  Why is anything?  But I did not know any of these things either.  And somewhere, in the back of my mind, I needed something else.  The soft, musical sound of a song, like waves crashing against a cliff, or wind wispering through the trees.  I did not know why I needed this, I just did.  It was part of me.  Trying to figure out why was like trying to figure out why I exist.  I did not know.  I just am.  That's all there is to it. But why?

The End
