Why? - Poem by Sylvia Frances Chan

What if someone lies to you?
What if that is really true?
What if that's your best friend now?
How must i feel then, yes! HOW?

Why cannot we taste the fruits of true friendship?
Why cannot we taste the good results of true companionship?
Why must it always have a shipwreck because of wrong navigation?
Why all of a sudden sailing to an unknown destination?

These are all my questions dear
These are all so very new to me, as they suddenly appear
We know that honesty is the best policy
we possess inner wealth and much legacy
and God gave us much talent, gift, and prophecy
so WHY my darling, now i almost cry i'm proxy....

My dear, WHY must it happen
someone unknown to you has let it unwrappin'
why so many lines were a copy
my love, our brandnew car now has turned a jalopy

Form: Rhyme Royal or Rime Royale


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Yes, WHY. For some important reasons, I cannot understand that a person who has no any poetical talents, must deceive us, the readers, that she created that herself. If she has no talent nor good knowledge of the English language, let it! Never try to write a poem, OR take first a good course on Writing Poetry or on Grammar of the English language. She called me a best friend, but about her poems she lied to me and to everyone. I have FORGIVEN her, really, God knows it. I am never angry with her nor had I pointed her as 'wrong' or had I pointed to her as if she was a victim. I still cannot understand WHY she had done that. As I said I have FORGIVEN her. We are still friends. She always reads my poems.
