  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?

  10. The Mask

    • By Lisa Willhite
    • Published: August 2008

    Existing in the realm of its own true hell,
    the pacing of the parasite begins to swell.
    It suffers in silence, yet demands to be heard.
    It will never survive without its bevy of words.
