Why


Why i?
The burdens we bear begin the tear
Why?
Lost, confused -- so far from center
Why?
All of this pain, all of this mourning
Why?
Cost, abused -- a soul so cold, it reflects winter
Why?

Holding on, barely and for what reason?
Why am i committing this terrible treason
Lost, confused -- so far from center
Thoughts echo, feelings stain
I am heavy like a cloud, that's bearing too much rain
Cost, abused -- a soul unheard, cinder

Smoldering, why can't i let go?
Burning, why can't i let go?
Lost, confused -- so far from center
Feelings stain, perception is bending
I am a ditch digger with a task that's unending
Cost, abused -- a soul yearning, where is my sender

Why i?
Why?
