I Asked . . .


I asked the grass why it was green
And it cried and tried to turn yellow
I asked the moon why it was white
And it hid behind the clouds
I asked the sun why can't we touch you
And it grew a little cooler to try to be good enough
I asked the flowers to bloom
And it tried and tried
I asked the sky to grow dark
And it did and the the sun cried
I asked the seeds why they take so long to grow
And they said they're trying, please don't yell
I asked myself why do we treat people like this
And the sun came out
The flowers bloomed
The moon was proud
And I kept quiet
And everything was perfect.
