Why must I be the considerate one?
Because no one else shows their compassion.
Why is it I bother to even care?
Because I give in to no one's despair.
Why must bitterness always fill my cup?
Because the pain of others fills me up.
Why do I not give in to newfound rage?
Because I am no puppet on a stage.
Why should I not give myself to the knife?
Because there is some reason for my life.

Very good, and yes there is a reason for your life, actually I'm sure there are many reasons why you are here. As I have read your poetry I would have to say one reason your here is to be a friend, and guiding support to the many people who surround your life. Your gifted in your poetry and that makes you special too.

DreamEvil,
I just issued you a check for one million reasons.
Don't spend it all in one place.

Excellent!!! The truth that lies beyond your questions and answers far outnumers the words in this poem. You have done a wonderful job with this. Without wasting a single word, you have spoken volumes and caused each of your readers to stop for just a bit and ask these questions of themselves.

There are more reasons for choosing life than not, and not all of them are apparent. The here and the now has so many, your poetry is but one effecting all who read. And the futur? Well it holds a countless number to discover. Enjoy the search as best you can.
Thanks for sharing all you do.

DE: I can't ask you to not feel the way you do... despair doesn't respond to logic. But I can say I hope your world gets better soon... and that you continue to share your poems with us... When you can't find a reason on your own, turn here to the forum where so many people care for you.

Damn, this was one hell of a way to greet the start of my day. Another slice of humble pie anyone? Sorry, sarcasm is just my way.
Thank you all for the sentiment, it truly amazes me that there are those that feel this way towards me.

Your talent is limitless. You have a gift...
Gifts are for giving, life is for living
Your words give my life a lift.

Keep writing, live on.

And you ask why I tell you there is some light in the world residing on people. I choose to see it in you, though you may deny it frined. As the others said, another masterpiece of short words, with a long-lasting effect.

Because to give in is to quit and you're made of sterner stuff...note I didn't say firmer...*g*..
