I don’t know

I wonder what you know, what you do know
for your answer to everything that I ask
is always, “I don’t know. You decide.”
When I ask what you’d like for dinner
you say, “I don’t know. anything.”
Now this anything does not grow on trees
so it’s neither a vegetable nor a fruit!
This anything is therefore not food.
So, how do I cook you this anything?
When I ask what movie you’d like to watch
You say, “I don’t know. You decide.”
So, if I am to decide on the choice then
why do I need to ask you in the first place?
When I ask what you’d like to do over the weekend
you say, “I Don’t know. something.”
Now this something could be anything but
to me it is nothing if it is not defined
by language that you need to communicate .
Ugh! How frustrating it is to be me.
How frustrating it is to be me with you!
Sometimes I wish that when you ask me,
“What’s for dinner?”, I could just quip, “I don’t know!”

About Sonal Singh

I believe that life is a repertoire of anecdotes. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, the people we meet, our conversations with them; all make life a melange of tales. And, that is what I attempt to capture through my writing. My cooking is no different! It reflects my love for travel and my love for innovation. The kitchen is my happy place. So, even though by vocation I am a recruiter (www.rianplacements.com), by passion I am a writer, home chef and a hodophile.
