Why lie?
To make it seem that you are relatable,
By telling a small fable.
Why spy?
To know who is at the other end of the cable,
When the frayed rope is not able.
Why tie?
To make a connection,
One that is inseparable.
Why fly?
To reach new heights,
when the ground is not yet stable.

Why sigh?
To express disdain,
Without citing a refrain.
Why die?
To reunite with loved ones past,
Like the one who took a swig of life all too fast.
Why shy?
To avoid threat,
Like approaching the ones you have not met.

Why see?
To experience the kiss of nature,
And take a mental picture.
Why fee?
To receive a trivial amount,
If that is what really counts.
Why be?
To change the world,
Or curl into a little ball, all furled.


The author's comments:

Being a curious person, I wanted to write a poem that reflects my thought process, whether it be about human nature or definite events, in my mind they all contain a question, one that deserves to be justified. With this poem I am hoping to convey the thought behind bad nature, while attempting to incite the good nature.
