How Can This Be

I don't understand how

A world that's full of people

Can feel so lonely

And a heart so full of love

Can be so shallow.

How can something so pure and beautiful as life

Be so harsh and ugly?

How can someone confuse love and hate?

How can a person kill another person?

Why is this world so full of sorrow?

How can a person ignore someone's tears?

A cry for help is rejected.

A soul is left alone.

Mistakes are made.

Accidents happen.

But these things are not meant to be done purposely.

A cut is made, blood is spilled, a scar is left behind.

Life is taken, tears fall, people are left behind.

Why do these things happen?

I won't be hurt again.

I want be left alone again.
