Why

Why do we love,
Everyone is the same,
We put our heart and soul in,
Because we may feel a flame,

But in the end we are fools,
For trying to believe in more,
For hoping someone in this world,
Is worth fighting for,

Why do we move on,
The results never change,
Our heart is returned in pieces,
Cold, destroyed, and deranged,

Yet we pull ourselves from the sorrow,
From the cold, lonely pain,
And search for someone,
Who our trust can remain,

Why do we trust,
When it’s broken time after time,
We set aside our past,
And say this one will be fine,

When someone gives us a reason,
Just when it seems there is hope,
Again we are torn down,
Left with a broken heart to cope,

Why do we hope,
When the world seems so wrong,
Something in us strives,
To feel like we belong,

Just when we’ve given up hope,
When love seems to be lost,
Out of nowhere they come,
And show us exactly why we paid our cost.
