Why


Why do people lie on you?

Why do people say they care and then show you they don't?

Why do people say they are there for you, and when you need them the most, they are never there?

Why do people say that they are your friends, but are so quick to believe a lie about you when they know for a fact, thats not you?

At times i really wonder,

Why do people even bother?

Bother to come and speak to you, when they know there plan if just to hurt you?

Some people just make me so angry,

They don't know what they want to do with their lives.

One minute they are with you and the next they are against you.

People ya'll just need to get it get it together,

And do it quick, because those people are going to be in for a treat.

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
