Sometimes.

Why does it happen sometimes,
That even all the happiness in the world doesn’t suffice.
In spite of all the love and promises,
What you always hear are yells and cries.

Why does it happen sometimes,
That the bad time stays on, while the good time flies.
Whenever you muster up the courage to listen,
All that you’re surrounded by are lies.

Why does it happen sometimes,
That the best of us are demoralized.
And in the morbid fight between vanity and truth,
Which side to choose, people do not realize.

Why does it happen sometimes,
Values which are principal, are never capitalized.
And in this shallow world of greed and distrust,
Who would listen to this cry of mine, but the disguised?

Why does it happen sometimes,
That the poetic element in misery always rhymes.
And the minute you feel ‘This is it!’,
Another failure arrives.

Why does it happen sometimes,
That faith arrives in the darkest of times.
And whenever you hit the bottom of the ocean,
Remember these lines:
