In A Suffered Suffocating - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

If a doing causes you undo strife,
Why is it there in your life to live?
And...
If tears appear to flow and drop,
Nonstop from your swollen eyes.
Why do you continue to hide your sighs?
Why do you keep this undenied inside?

Do you need someone that bad,
That keeps you sad?
Is a love you never had bestowing lots of sorrow?
Don't wait too late in a suffered suffocating.
Why smother yourself just to survive?

Open up the door and create some new rules.
Only you can change that attitude to choose.
And live your life to free from fear.
Open up the door and create some new rules.
Only you can change 'that' attitude...
With a doing only you can choose,
To know a happiness just for you.

If a doing causes you undo strife,
Why is it there in your life to live?
Don't wait too late in a suffered suffocating.
Why smother yourself just to survive?
Open up the door and create some new rules.
Only you can change 'that' attitude...
With a doing only you can choose,
To know a happiness just for you...
To be done and to do.
