    why

    why did the mountain step forward
    to shelter the goat from the winds

    why did the rains cleanse the air
    for us to pollute it...again

    why did the river sing it's melody of spring
    for its audience to hear

    why did the trees grant me shade
    that the afternoon heat wouldn't stroke me too bad

    why did GOD let me live
    when i broke every rule HE commanded of me

    WHY.
