Why Is It That?

I am sure, that at some point of time in life, everyone of us has been misunderstood.The misunderstanding takes its toll especially when our close ones, whom, we thought, actually understood us seem to be the ones causing most pain in that predicament. Well, this poem is for all those of you who had to hold yourself through that seemingly endless vortex of pain…




Why is it that,

Everytime I sing a song

Everyone feels I am wrong…?

That I am never able

To keep a friend at my table…?


Why is it that,

I have to share,

My feelings with walls so bare…?

That none understand

But only reprimand?


Why is it that,

Others feel I have no heart,

Despite no wrong on my part…?

That no one can see

The things I feel within me…?


Why is it that,

Even when I try my best 

I am put to test…?

That even with all effort and care

My affection is lost into the air….


Why is it that,

People misunderstand me

Even if I beg for pardon on my knee…?

That in my time of need

Nobody cares in word or deed…?


Why is it that,

The price of love is not paid

Even with lives laid…?

That the things I feel

Always have to have a seal…?


Is there no salvation?

Is there no deliverance?

Is there no end to this pain in abundance?

Is there ever an answer for all this emotional starvation?


I ask myself and others alike…

Why is it that these things happen…?
