Why Bother?


Why has each heart turned oh so cold?

Why has our sanity relinquished control?

Why have we fallen so deep we now crawl?

Why does my mind keep rejecting your calls?

Why does my soul feel so pulled to your ways?

Why does my heart still detest all my days?

Why does time flow both fast and so slow?

Why does our bodies die as we grow old?

Why do most mirrors reflect only pain?

Why do my eyes oft take over my brain?

Why can’t this world learn to love more than hate?

Why can’t I make something not second-rate?

Why did all mortals choose to control?

Why did my family obey Satan’s pull?

Why did my friends grant me all they despised?

Why did they kill all the joy in my eyes?

Why can’t we all just fucking get along?
