I have all these questions, Sir,

with not a mortal response.
So I have all these problems, Sir,
that I don’t know how to solve.
Was it with your left hand you have painted me into being, Sir?

In this right-handed worldyou made, why did I turn out this way?
Forgive me for these questions, Sir,

I mean to place no blame.
But forgive me for asking such, Sir,
For why I’ve become this way.
Where did my youth go?
It’s like I’ve been trying to hold onto morning mist, sir,
It seems like it’s here, but the sun always rises and we always burn away.
I wondered if you hate me, Sir,
For they say you make no mistakes.
But forgive me for wondering still, though, Sir,

For I can’t help be in pain.
What sins of my past life am I paying for?

"Let the disappointments pass
Let the laughter fill your glass
Let your illusions last until they shatter.
Whatever you might hope to find
Among the thoughts that crowd your mind
There won't be many that ever really matter.
But take good care of your mother
And remember to be kind
When the pain of another will serve you to remind."
--Jackson Browne

You don't have to read anything if you don't want, Cathy Shang. You have good questions. Please keep writing poetry:)

"Upon his bench the pieces lay
As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]
