Do you ever just stare at the sky; hoping for an answer to the question why.
Why - do bad things happen;
Why - do some people go bad;
Why - do you have to make bad decisions, that make other people sad.
That's the way of the world, with it's twist and turns.
All anyone can do is try, but still; there will always be the question why?

    The question we all have asked, never to receive a complete answer, here on earth anyway. Yes, I have looked up to the sky and asked, literally hoping for an answer. A poem we can all relate to. Love, Shar

    I just asked myself this same question last night as I wrote "In A Matter of Minutes". To see my son bombed out and argueing with his dad and self. I had to go to my room and retreat. Continue to write. We are reading. Be encouraged no matter what state mentally or physically you are in you have found friends upon this site. Continue to share.

    this question is asked by lots of people, and no offence to you vanessa, mankind. is placed on the earth to be our bro and sis keeper, but the heart of men and women grow so greedy, covetious, selfish, wicked, you name it, that it has become a me me my self and i society. we have the ability to choose freely to do the right thing or the wrong thing, but sadly the wrong thing seems easier to do.
