What? Why? - Poem by Johnny Golding
Flee, O flee, Why can't I flee and run?
What force, So mystic, Keeps me bound unto this place?
What prison wall, So unclear, Stops me from escaping?
What unknown love, So tradgic, Prevents me from leaving?
What smiling face, So beautiful, Wants me to stay?
And, If one of these, Is it worth it?
