Why

Tell me why some poeple cry
Is it because they are numb inside
Can you tell me why
~~~
Tell me why some people are crazy
Is it because their world is hazy
Please tell me why
~~~
Tell me why some people are lonely
Is it because it is them only
Tell me why
~~~
Tell me why I sometimes feel this way
Is it because my world sometimes feels grey
Why
~~~

I cannot tell you why I cry,
Or face the world with a sigh.
I cannot tell you why I'm crazy,
Or why reality doesn't phaze me.
I cannot tell you why I'm lonely,
But I can you you're not the only
One to ever feel that way,
My world too, is painted grey.


Good poem, Tracie.  I relate well, even if I don't know the answers.

numb, crazy, lonely, unreal, out of place, lost, adrift, empty, yes, I know the feeling, and you put your finger on it. Good poem

great poem, the why's are hard to remove and answer cause we seem to always need more than what is right here with us.

To all who replied thanks. the words are what I need to hear...I don't think there will ever be a true answer to any of these, but only a friends voice and outstreched hand to help get through. LoL thanks once again

There is often no understanding why.  We all find ourselves in those places now and then.  Sometimes, those feelings help us understand ourselves. There is a strength that comes from working through those feelings and knowing they don't last.  Hope your on top of the world soon.  Will look for you there.

Yes, I cry sometimes because I'm lonely.  And sometimes I laugh...there is one woman in my life who can make me laugh.  James

If we knew the answers to these questions would we quest for answers to more questions.  A thirst to know the unknow and a need to feel understood....the poet's curse or gift however you choose to see it.  A deep poem with beautiful use of the truth.

Now you know why, so don't be grey,
come out and play, and wite happy poetry!
Welcome!!!!

 "Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
O,no! it is an ever-fixed mark....William Shakespeare
