How could anyone?
How could anyone apart from us love us?
How could anyone apart from us forgive us?
How could anyone apart from us want us?
How could anyone apart from us save us?
Observe and observe us carefully
Creature's way below that of tiny insects,
We are wrong in every way possible
Foolish beings, why are we needed?
Humanity, man kind,
We cause nothing but hurt, war and destruction
Sinful creatures since the time of our conception
I can't believe anything could
A piece of nothing comes to you,
It comes to you and asks you why?
Not that it deserves an answer be it true or false
I'm asking why? How? What for?
I don't think it possible
A gift so wonderful
A gift so cruel
A gift so abused
You gave it to us,
You created us, our world
Again, a desire which can never be fulfilled, a question of why?
Not all of us are bad, some are good and genuine
It seems that with each step I take
I commit an evil
Sometimes it's unfair
Sometimes I do it unaware
So now do you understand why?
Why I come to you in fear, why I distance myself greatly
Why you see me with such a thick bubble
A young human being, ignorant? Yes
But, surely to know where I stand,
To be fearful in your presence
To see man for what he really is
To be able to recognise my nothingness
My little or no significance, worth
Why, maybe we're just machines
Programmed to do certain things
And something went horribly wrong
So reprogram us
Or get rid of us completely
But, please before you make your decision
Remember as nothing as we are, we still feel
Remember us that tried,
Tried to walk in your light
Us that feared you
And those of us who tried living by your light even though we were afraid
I'm sorry if I offend you
I'm sorry if I anger you
I thank and praise you
A servant of no value
Offers you their apologies
Thanks, prayer and songs of praises
You lend an ear…
What did we do to deserve this?
