The rejected masterpiece
In all it’s pride
Staring wide eyed
With dripping mockery
At the haters
Who fail the task
Why do we always cheat ourselves?
Why can’t we accept things the way they are?
Why do we try to change the truth?
Why can’t we be us?
Why the deception?
Why the action?
Why do we keep explaining ourselves again and again?
Why are we so desperate not to lose?
Why do we compete without reason?
Why do we live without passion?
Why do we act unaffected?
Why do we lie against our own good?
Why can’t we live by our rules?
Why don’t we see that it’s not getting us anywhere?
Why don’t we understand that we are killing ourselves?
