Why?

Why

Why is it so easy to forget

All the good

And so easily revert

To the person we regret

Why?

 

Why when we try

So hard to get it right

Something still goes wrong

And we start singing

That same old song

Why?

 

Why can’t we so easily

Push on and remember

All the good

Even through the misunderstood

And stand strong

As easily and readily

As we seem to forget

And regret

Why?
