    Why is life full of suffering and pain
    Why don't we understand so many of these things
    Why do people die out on the streets


    Why when men hear the word daddy or commitment they back down and get cold feet
    Why do women sale their bodies for pay
    Why do some women and men stay in abusive relationships and let men beat on them all day


    Why do we start war for no justable cause
    Why do we stand back and continue to watch our young men and women fall
    So if any of these whys apply to you
    Search deep within yourself and hopefully you'll find the truth

    Some thought provoking questions here. The answers do lie within, even though they can be hard to face. I hear you. Flow on.

    Hi and welcome here, where there's room for all

    The "y's" are or have been attached to us all in one way or another, that's true. But the world is what it is ...hmmm ..I wonder why?
    I like your piece poet, keep flowing
