Why? A Poem

Why?
Do I keep moving forward?
I don’t understand,
These mindless creatures,
Inside my head,
Moving me forward,
Push
Pull
Those levers,
When all I wanna do,
Is lay down and die!

Why,
Jesus,
Oh why,
Won’t they let me die?

Down,
Out,
Cry,
Lie,
Doing fine,
No complaints,
Is the mask on tight?

The mask,
Once fell off,
Truth revealed,
Shone in light,
To those dark corners,
The rats fled,
Into those dingy mazes,
Amazed?
Just for a moment,
Hurry,
Put the mask back on,
Must not show the world,
That truth,
Those feelings,
Always happy,
Laugh,
And the world laughs with you,
Cry,
Oh madness,
And the world runs away,
Hide,
Those tears of pain,
Fear,
Do not cry,
Big boys do not cry,
Push it down,
All inside,
Father said,
There I laid,
Laugh,
Ha ha,
Cry!
