why is it
that when we try so hard
to do something right,
it seems everything
tends to go wrong?
why is it
that when we try so much
to bathe in the light,
it seems the rain
pours down so long?
why is it
that people say
they can forgive
but not forget?
why is it
that when you pay
you are still
forever in debt?
why is it
that when i cry
i never make
a sound?
why is it
that when i sigh
it's because you're
not around?
why is it
my soul aches
to do the things
my mind won't
let me do?
why is it
my heart breaks
and i need wings
because i don't
have you?
