Why?

Why?

A Poem by Alice Walker
"

"Why?" That seems like the question people often ask. But what if you heard the questions often asked by someone who nearly always forgotten. How would you react?

"
Can you hear me?
Can you see me?
Why can't anyone hear me?
Why can't anyone see me?
Is it because I love another girl?
Is it because I won't form to the standards?
Tell me why you can't stand to hear me.
Tell me why you can't stand to see me.
I don't really care though.
I just want to know why.
Why do you try not to hear me?
Why do you try not to see me?
Just tell me-

Why?
