What good would it do if I leave everything there? What good would it do to do nothing at all? A poem that's just about what good.

What good?


What good does it do,
With all the pain?
What good does it do?
Living in vain?

I want for the better,
The many many things,
All of life's prizes
What life's to bring.

Sometimes they leave,
sometimes they stay.
But we all know,
We'll see them again someday.

What good does it do,
When you leave without good-byes?
What good does it do,
When you never ever try?

What good does it do,
When I worry through the night?
What good does it do,
When you don't try to fight?

What good does it do,
when I won't let you go?
The good wouldn't do,
so I will let you go.

This is all an act,
Painted upon my face.
This is all an act,
One that I embraced.

I want to show you all,
What's real and what's fake.
I want to show you all,
That's not all I can take.

What the good life brings
Is to stay with us always
What the good life brings....
