Why Oh Why - Poem by Kyle Rasmussen

Why do I fight?
Why do I scratch
And claw
And scream
And cry
And pull
At the heartstrings
Of life?
Why, oh why?

Why not take it easy -
Get that stable job
Marry that stable wife
Buy that stable home
Raise that stable family
And life that stable life.
Why, oh why?

Why live like I already died,
Like I just showed up
To taste the wine?
Why, oh why?

Why...
Oh...
Why?
Because.
Because it's the way
I fly,
An angel with earthly tie,
Lost in a lonely world
Asking only "Why? "
