Why do I even bother

To count the tears dripped down

In silent screams

As I strangle the noise

That no one will hear?

Why care

That they don't

Though I have nowhere to hide?

Why choke back the emotion

My soul is stained with

To please those who hear not my cries?

Why live in this oblivion

Existing to exist

Nothing more than a time bomb

Born to die?

But most of all,

I wonder:

Why?
