WHY

I set out to live, I went out to give
My dreams for life set; I could see them.
But then as I went, and the more time I spent
The reality seemed…I can’t be them.

So in sorrow I pause looking back for the cause
What has led me to where I now stand?
And I wish that I did not quite so readily know…
But I do, and I full understand.

Day after day, as I go on my way
Amongst those whom my heart doth submit
Though it seems like so simple a thing to afford,
I know what to say…but don’t say it.

And then time after time, I am guilty of crime.
When my actions are set forth to wit,
And I make the decisions upon which life is based,
I know what to do…but won’t do it.

Though I know full and well, who I am, why I’m here,
And despite countless attempts to commit.
My own worst enemy…I forever remain,
I know what I can be…but won’t be it.
