One True Question
What seems to be the only question I bother to wonder anymore.
Almost as if nothing else catches my attention.
It almost seems as if I'm a target of some sort.
Just when something seems to be within reach,
When things finally seem to go my way,
Something happens to take it all away.
What have I done to deserve this?
I do nothing but good,
Yet seem to get nothing that I beg for in return.
I give all I can,
Yet get everything I desire taken away.
All in one fell swoop.
As if all the work I've done has been for nothing.
All the pain-staking...
