The reason I try
Why do I feel pain?
Seeing myself fail?
When I just want to gain?
Is it cause I wag my tail?
To others I seem over protective
To myself I see the ones I care
Who would try to solve a crime like a detective
So that we may this life share.
Yet when I fall
I feel sorrow and hate
Because I feel I’ve lost it all
And blame myself and add to my slate.
Will this life bring glee
Or sorrows to face
Either way I can’t flee
For in this life I will find my place
