Maybe some of you can't relate, but I am speaking for the majority of us who can.

Why is it that?
we always want things
that we know we cannot have

Why is it that?
when opportunity knocks the first time
we tend to let it pass us by

Why is it that?
It takes a second time
for us to never pass an opportunity again

Why is it that?
people associate money with happiness
when money is the root of all evil

Why is it that?
we search all over for love
when love is right in front of our face

How can love be blind?
when we are fully aware
that we are being mistreated

Why is it that?
we let others lower our esteem
when will we realize? that
those same people have low esteem themselves
so to boost theirs, they lower ours

Why is it that?
we let the world define beauty
when beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Why is it that?
we love the people who abuse us
and hate the people that love us

Why is it that?
the things that we know are wrong
we try to make right
It's hard to explain
These Questions in Life

Why is it that some people never seem to
question anything?  Thought-provoking piece,
mystery.

Now I should have thought of that when I was writing this poem!!!
It's wrong to question God, but is it wrong not to question at all.
Should we just await for answers?????
Or discover them ourselves
((puzzled))
