I Don'T Know Why

I don’t know why, the world is cold.
The evil in my body is taking over my soul.
I don’t know why I feel darkness in hate.
The way the world is my soul is on the break.

I don’t know why the time goes so fast.
I don’t know why my soul is cold like the Arctic.
I don’t know why I feel like I’m lock in jail.
My soul can’t make bail

    i'd like to agree with the statement before mine but i agree to an extent. i know how it is to not knowing the 'why' of something, and with not knowing comes that emptyiness we sometimes lose our-selves to. nice work on the poem.

    maybe you need someone to fill up that empty soul of yours. you need Jesus.
