  1. Why

    Pondering Life

    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?

    Reflective Poem About The Perception Of Time

    Time is slow, time is fast.
    It never stops, but it always lasts.

  7. The Mask

    • By Lisa Willhite
    • Published: August 2008

    Existing in the realm of its own true hell,

    It will never survive without its bevy of words.
