Pop quiz

Do we begin anew, or do we begin again? We may always remember how,
Though we may not remember when. We may remember what and why, with only a vague recollection of who. But, I will always remember the what, when, where, why, and how of you. Our lives are changed more than rooms that we rearrange to suit our needs. We play back the videos of our lives, but do not share with others the feeds. Our wounds get pushed down below the surface, so only vague bruises show where they bleed. And the funds come through, but we can’t chew on the mouthful that truly feeds. Can we begin again? Will the tunes still resonate as they did? Will we ever truly remember, or truly forget those tragedies when we were just kids? I want to want again, but basic needs are met and I sleep. I want to begin anew and yet my vows I’m unable to keep. These feelings pass, but longings do not. They merely become better hidden over time. They’re let slip out, though no less devout hidden beneath lines of rhyme. Wherefore is why, and how is a statement, who dat is a regional term. Parents ask their children what and when. Children give answers that are minimally firm, and grandparents give answers more zen. I think what you think. So, please tell me what that is. I’m waiting while others scoff, berating, for you to answer this quiz.
