Where Is My Reason?
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
Where is my reason?
Too many choices,
Makes my purpose unclear.
I know what to fear,
That has been pointed out to me.
I know the cost of living life,
Is rising steadily from my sight.
I know what is wrong,
Since few things done seem right.
When daylight comes...
It's going to be followed by the night!
But I hunger inside,
To feed an appetite that hides.
I watch others struggle in battles they fight!
Is that why I was born?
Just to take away from others...
What I choose and think I might like?
But 'where' is my 'reason'...
If what I take makes others uptight?
It can't be a comforting lifestyle,
For anyone involved in this plight!
