It Is What It Is

It Is What It Is

An Anne G

Original Anne-ism

It is what it is.

An idiom.

Reply to an unanswerable question.

An unresolvable situation.

Words used to complete sentences and thoughts.

A quote repeated over and over again;

by  young and by old, by scholars and fools.

What “is it” I ask and what does “it” mean?

We know that “it is” for so rarely we see,

five little words again and again.

The author unknown, unsure are we all.

Some doubt will remain when faced and without,

something better instead.

You’ll hear yourself say,

“It is what is is”, with a little disdain.

Why write?
I write because I am:
Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.
My intention: To poke, prod and provoke!
"Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess." - Oscar Wilde
