“Those who have a 'why' to live, can bear with almost any 'how.'”-Viktor Frankl
My true way of living is not for How,
My true way of living is Why for now,
This way of living is ‘cause of my vow.
I made this vow, for you and for him,
Two separate minds in a single rim,
This wasn’t made on a single whim.
‘Why’ is the question I now ask,
Why shall I stand behind your mask,
Is it ‘cause of your current task.
I will stand here anyway,
I know it’s a bit cliché,
But I am still here to stay.
Here I stay with you two,
I don’t know what to do,
We are truly taboo.
We can never be,
I’m sure you agree,
This I guarantee.
You are my Why,
For you, I’ll die,
I won’t deny.
I love you,
This is true,
My love grew.
