He drinks with quiet desperation;
she eats the same way, too.
Another fills lonely hours working
to excess, each trying to stop
pain
fear
smoldering rage

Why is our world
so heavy
full of dark and woe?
No where to turn to,
no where to go.

Yet there is a yin and yang here
glorious days of cheer
people laughing
loving
living good lives
filled with compassion and joy

How can such opposites
live side-by-side?
Why do I live in a paradise
of floresta, have a life
so blessed all around
while another suffers and dies?
Just this one question, please–
Why, Lord, please tell me why?
