Why do you glance away?
Because it is embarrassing
Because it is uncomfortable
Why do you turn away?
Because it is too boring
Because it is too predictable
Why do you walk away?
Because you don't care
Because you don't want to be involved
Why do you look away?
Because it strikes right into your heart
Because it is hard to accept
Why do you push away?
Because it is too close
Because it frightening you
Why do you throw away?
Because it disturbs you
Because it is disgusting
Why do you run away?
Because you can't take responsibility
Because you hiding something
Why do you back away?
Because you regret it
Because it is dangerous
Why do you stay away?
Because you need to remain unaffected
Because you don't want to be known
Why do you give away?
Because you don't need it anymore
Because your pride won't let you
