Why do we laugh
to stop the tears?
Why do we laugh
when faced with fears?
Why do we laugh
when we should be sad?
Come to thinking,
why do we laugh when we're glad?

Why do we cry
with joy on our face?
Why do we cry
when all is in place?
Why do we cry
over things that are small?
Come to thinking,
why do we cry at all?

Why do we smile
when covering hate?
Why do we smile
when tempting fate?
Why do we smile
with clouds in the sky?
Come to thinking,
why do we smile when we cry?

Why do we try
when everything's wrong?
Why do we try
when life is so long?
Why do we try
when nothing goes right?
Come to thinking,
I know why...

We try for the fight.

i loved it i fought through alot of teasing when i was younger and i guess thats the whole reason i didnt give up, although i didnt realize it then i refused to be beat down without a fight. well i won and now im so much better than before. great poem.
