I want to know WHY.
The day is about to end with a simple sigh,
Another day is over but I still have these WHYs.
Why are we living in this world of lies?
It is the truth that we always sacrifice.
Why do most people end up with just goodbyes?
Putting end to things that perfectly rhyme.
Why the most important word is only “I”?
Only to forget that seeing “others” is also worth a try.
Why do we keep on aiming to be on the pedestal high?
Even if we are stepping on the others that cry.
Why do we choose to be who we are not?
Just to conceal the real person within us.
Why do we want those which are not ours?
And just throw away what’s within in our hands.
Why is “contentment” written first in our dictionary?
Even if “resentment” comes first in with our memories.
These whys and other life’s million whys,
I know won’t be answered as early as tomorrow’s rise.
It will be a lifetime pursuit to decipher the answers,
Eventually I will figure them out with a constant prayer.
