Why All The Emotions?
Sadness swells me within
Why can't this pain just end?
There must be reasons why they remain
Emotions, you have no control
I try to keep these commotions of emotions refrained
Instead all they do is make me feel drained
All of them cause me to feel overwhelmed
Why can't I keep them hemmed?
Place them neatly in order, til I find the time to consider?
How many words must I bleed?
How many unyielding tears must I shed?
I wish to keep them locked away in a far away shed!
Out of sight out of mind
Too bad that is impossible to find
Because so many emotions arise, and they do not hide
For there are just so many I feel
Everyone of them at once
They even make me feel as if I am drowning
Stumped and confused I am always frowning
How can emotions have this kind of power?
I ask to the Higher Power
Why God, O why?
Why do you feel me up so much of these emotions
When you know what it does to me
Are you just waiting for me to explode?
If I do will that be my final episode?
Do it then, I'm sold
Really all I want to be filled with is
Love, truth, and security
For once to filled with you purity
