ASKING “WHY?”

Why are things the way
they are? Why are they
not better? Why do good
things seem so far? Why
does change take forever?

Why are there so many
rainy days? Why not
perfect weather? Why
take the wrong path in
life, when the right path

is much better? Why are
things as they appear,
not really as they are
portrayed? Why choose
doing things difficultly,

when there’s a easier way?
Why end something good
before it even begins? Why
take one look? Why not
look again? Why judge

the outside without
looking within? Why look
all over the world for
something right in front
of your eyes? Why do

people commit suicide?
Life is the Love of God
that abides. Why take
what we have for granted,
when at any time we could

die? Why hold all your
pain inside, when you can
let it out and cry? Why
be willing to take, but
not willing to give? We

all need help sometimes,
in order to live. Why spend
all your time working, and
a short time with family
and friends; when on any

day of the week, your world
could end? Why must the poor
watch the rich, while they
live in strife? Why do we
always question our existence,
throughout our lives?
