Why? Tears dropping down my face and am still asking myself why? Looking around, no one to hug no one to ask why? Days after day’s nights after nights, the mystery still goes on. In addition, am still asking myself why? It has never been answerable why my life is mist and lost in nowhere. Liberality freedom justice and confidence I cry for. Look up as a tear rolls slowly down my cheek I think about better days and wonder if I'll ever feel that way again. why you've said those things you did that stole my soul and took me to fantasies I wondered for a moment if this is all  just a dream if I shall wake in the morning and be relieved. You look at me with a confusion I have never seen, slowly pull me towards you and wipe the tears from my cheek. It was just the beginning but I was too blind to see it, why should you be so heartless and cruel? My soul is no more, I am some body I don’t know or do I want to be what you have turn me into.  Is it judgement am facing for am I just endeavouring through hard times; nothing seems to go right with me I feel so cursed. When I expect happiness it turns out to be another horrible nightmare where to go who to trust, when to speak I have no idea. The ways are blended twisted and evaded, which way to go, is there anyway I can take to reach my destination to run away from these tragedy. I might not be what your allegations and achievements are neglecting towards but I appreciate my self just the way I am, I stand to develop to what I am assigned to. Why should I regret when its never going to change anything why should I still be in trauma while knowing that am strong enough to stand up again an walk away with or without pain. The whole world is asking why, but am on more part of that world. Its time for a new and a better start as I relegate am bold, strong and ready for a new adventure.
