I don’t understand
Why people judge
Why many fall
Why we go and trudge

But most of all
Why everyone stalls
Why we stop and crawl
Why the sun still stops to shine at us
Why the clouds move through

What I understand is
Why the sun will rise again
Why there is always a tomorrow
Why I can try again
Why I’ll believe it then

The author's comments:
I wrote this to reflect how life isn't just a walk in the park but when trials come there is always hope beyond the edge of our view
