Why

©

Published: March 2008

why do we begin if we don't plan to finish
why do we love if we don't want to get hurt
why do we live if someday we must die
why do we smile if we really hurt inside
why do we frown when everything is upside down
why do we plan but not take to action
why do we cry when someday it will be alright
why do we get mad if we really should be glad
why do we mourn when somebody is gone
why do we say hi if we really mean goodbye
why do we question what shouldn't be questioned
and answer what shouldn't be answered?
tell me now...why?

This poem is really meaningful. I want to answer to why do we mourn when somebody is gone . you mourn somebody only if you love them dearly otherwise you don't mourn, for example I mourned for a whole year my moms death cuz the only person I adored in my life was MY MOM. and the only person now in my life who I ADORE is my son. The feelings you carry in your soul makes you love, hate mourn all the emotions .LOVE LOVE
