Why Do Some Live Without A Giving - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I've been living in a world,
Many show they do resent...
To be living without giving but expecting they should get.

I've been living in a world,
Many show they do resent...
To be living without giving but expecting they should get.

Oh why...
Do some live without a giving.
Oh why...
Do some live without a giving.
Oh why...
Do some live without a giving.
Oh why...
Do I?

I've been living in a world,
Many show they do resent...
To be living without giving but expecting they should get.

I've been living in a world,
Many show they do resent...
To be living without giving but expecting they should get.

Oh why...
Do some live without a giving.
Oh why...
Do some live without a giving.
Oh why...
Do some live without a giving.
Oh why...
Do I?

And they're quick to get the pity.
And this seems to benefit.
And they're quick to get the pity.
And this seems to benefit.

Oh why...
Do some live without a giving.
Oh why...
Do some live without a giving.
Oh why...
Do some live without a giving.
Oh why...
Do I?

Oh why...
Do some people get the pity.
Oh why...
Do some people get the pity.
And this seems to benefit.
And this seems to benefit.
And this seems to benefit.
Oh why...
Do some people get the pity.
And this seems to benefit.

I've been living in a world,
Many show they do resent...
To be living without giving but expecting they should get.

Oh why...
Do some people get the pity.
And this seems to benefit.

    yes true... many live without giving while at the same time demanding to be given and seem to be receiving too... ironic... (Report) Reply
