Screaming At The Why


Never wished I had, what other people have, until now
Never took life for granted, always respected its mystery, until now
Never was a doer, I was more a thinker
But I can stay here forever trapped by my thoughts
There might be universal truths
There must be a universal equilibrium
But how quickly life can turn a smile into a teardrop
I did nothing wrong
We did nothing wrong
Today is the future that never arrived
Today is the timeline that never materialised
I could happily punch the sun from the sky,
As it dared to show its face today
I want to be numb, far away from this pain.

Looking up
Screaming at the why
Tomorrow will replace
But tomorrow will never replace
The worst day, the worst day of my life

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
