I write because I cannot speak,

Hard as I may try,

I hate because I cannot love,

But couldn’t tell you why,

I laugh because I cannot cry,

Even when I should,

I leave because I cannot stay,

Though I wish I could,

I lie because I cannot face,

The truth which hurts so much,

I want because I cannot have,

The world beyond my touch,

I lose because I cannot win,

Despite the things I do,

I die because I cannot live,

And so must start anew,

I write, hate, laugh and leave,

I lie, want, lose, and die,

I do because I cannot help,

But never will deny
