The Writer's Voice

The World's Favourite Literary Website



Jennifer Lawson

Why do things have to change?
Why can't they stay the same?
Why can't we go through life
Without changing and adding strife?
Why does there have to be pain?

I don't understand the actions of man
To hurt and leave one to cry.
Maybe not on purpose, or maybe it is
Whichever, it's not right.

I know we can't live every day 
The same as the one before.
But why does it have to be
Sorrow, hurt, and pain 
Always at my door?
