Why

Why

A Poem by Lustre
"

I just feel like writing this one for no apparent reason.

"
I wonder why
Why -
I have to meet others expectations;
I have to work hard for others
I have to be good and to be someone else.
I wonder why
Why - 
Must I deal with people I don't like
Must I smile when I don't feel like 
Must I remain strong when I want to give up.
Why?

A very good poem. You asked important questions. Life isn't easy. Unless you are a monk. You must deal with people that offend us. Don't give-up. Just smile and move on. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

Because we feel obligated by social niceties. But defy them Lustre! Be yourself, do what you feel in the moment, don't let the world form you into something you don't want to be.
