Tell Me Why

Tell me why
we all have to suffer,
when there's so much good.
Tell me why
people make those choices
that aren't good for them.
Tell me why
this world is filled with lies
when it's easier to tell the truth.
Tell me why
it spirals out of control
so quickly.
Tell me why...
because I don't understand.
