Why so Sad? (poem)

Why so Sad?

Why so sad, ashamed of what you've done?
Afraid forgiveness won't be given by anyone?
And who do you think is above you in life?
Who's been perfect, who's done everything right?

Who do you feel you need to kneel before,
What is it that will finally make you feel whole?
I don't understand what keeps you in chains,
Why the doubt and fear of yourself remains.

Why so blue, what keeps your tongue tied?
Afraid someone will discover you've lied?
Do you think that they don't already know?
Maybe they choose to ignore it, just let it go.

Does that make you a bad person inside?
The fact that you have lied several times?
Is that what keeps you from speaking out?
That you can be honest , is that what you doubt?

Why you cry, you mess up at love again,
Did someone get too close, did they get in?
Did they take what they needed and move along,
Leave you afraid and alone, did it all go wrong?

Would you feel better if you did the same?
Love someone, then leave them in pain?
Would that stroke your bruised ego enough,
That you would try your hand again at true love?

Or maybe..

You're ashamed for what mankind has done and become
You're silent because there are already too many opinions,
You tell the truth even though others lie to you all day long,
You believe in love even though you're constantly proven wrong.
