Why - Poem by Michael Buchanan

Why is everything different,
why is nothing ever the same,
why does everything always fall apart,
why do we have to blame.
Why must we live,
just to die....
why do we love,
just to cry.
why does god punish,
us all with these whys,
so many questions and
No Answers tonight
