• Sadness


    Why are things as they are?
    Why can't I wish on my lucky star
    For things to change to better not worse?
    Why do I feel as if a curse
    As been placed on me?
    Why can't anyone see
    The feelings swirling inside of me?
    Why do I feel as if I let everyone down?
    Why do I feel as if I've been shoved ot the ground
    Again? Never to get up again.
    I know, my Lord, that you are with me,
    But why can't I see
    You here with me?
    Why are things as they are?
    Will they ever be better or are
    They doomed to be worse?

    Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.
