To act without compulsion
no hatred or fear for motive
possibility invites
without promise or prediction

faith in opening
wonder that instigates
groping without markers
blindness leading to sight

kindness lacks law
nurture dispels defense
pursuing another’s growth
a reason to change within

labor without profit
learning without direction
always yielding new ways
of thinking and practice

abandoning excuse to explain
solely giving without recoup
called love and sacrifice
lies except when doing

no final measure
no name to subdue
just exerting flesh and language
to accept another’s reach.


Why do people hurt you?
why do they lie?
Why do they say you have no right?
When they let you into their life.


Why do people love?
Why do they leave?
Why do they become sad?
When you want them to be happy with you all their life.


Why do they let you love them?
Why do they let them love you too?
Why do they leave you?
When you don’t want to leave them too.


Why do people get hurt?
Why do they feel the pain?
Why do they fool you?
When they are supposed to be loving you.


Why do they make you cry?
Why do they take you for granted?
Why do they say goodbye?
When you don’t have the reasons why.


Why do they continue to love?
Why do they love to love?
Why do they long to be loved?
When you’re loving them too much.
