why, must i endure

the weight of this darkness

so heavy on my small shoulders?

why, give me this pain

when there seems no solution

to its end?

why, why, why me?

pathetic, i know

why- the world carries much more weight than me

famine, wars, pure evil doers

suffering children and animals

why, must i be so selfish?

complaining of my selfish little demons

my child asks, mom will you be better tomorrow?

a feeble excuse of a mother

i hope so, baby.  i hope so…

why, why, why….
