Itís the question everyone asks when we try to seek clarity and our minds wont give up the answer
Itís a question that we ask mostly when the answer is always out of sight
And it kills us inside because we feel it can save us from ourselves but for some reason, no one can help us, and we rely on our instincts to see if we are right

Why did this happen to me?

Well they say everything happens for a reason and I do agree, but funny how we only say that when bad things happen
Is the answer to this question going to take away all of my pain?
Am I ignorant to believe that someone will even give me the truth to any of my questions or am I destined to always question the same?

Why did you hurt me?

Itís the ultimate answer we seek despite the fact that who ever you ask wonít be able speak the words that will settle your soul
Our love for each other was real yet you found the desire to deceive
As truthful and sincere as two imperfect people can be, one of them will lose their way and in our minds it becomes impossible to perceive

Why canít I let this go?

Now that weíve accepted the fact we canít get what we want, we change the game and we will question ourselves
How can my body hold such ruling energy and when will it end?
With no answer to find we block out the union that started this mess and trust the theory of time and so over our ďwhyísĒ is what we will pretend

i'm afraid we get caught up in the idea of what "a poem is supposed to be." i like prose poems and certainly enjoyed this one.

it has motivated me to investigate your other postings.
