Why

why dare to dream
when all your dreams can be shattered
with a single blow
life is unkind to those who dream
can i lock my mind to keep them out

why dare to care
caring can only cause you pain
with a single word your heart can break
tears follow caring
can i lock my heart and seal it tight

why dare to want
lonliness and yearning are all you get
a body never satisfied
passion consuming your soul
can i lock my desires and never feel again

why dare to hope
spirits raised only to tumble down
to sore and crash again and again
leaving you hopeless
can i lock my wishes away and forget

why dare to be
to exist in a world that is unkind
why take that risk
the pain is so great
can i lock my soul and cease to be

why dare to be me
to dream, to care, to hope
to desire, to be...why?
because someone is calling and i can hear
a soul who is searching....for me

I used to ask the same question, why? Now I prefer to ask Why not?.

Hi DragonFire,

Daring to live life is a challenge to everyone at one point or another but life can give some very sweet rewards.

I am inclined to agree with Eagle one
and I think this is a great place to ask such a question
