If Only

Why can't it just be easy?

Why can't it just be simpler?

-

Why can't he just have lived?

Why can't they just have a chance at being happy?

-

Why did that asshole

have to get away with it?

-

Why does life have to be so complicated?

Why can't I just be there with them?!

-

Too many questions,

and not enough answers.

-

My heart is aching

and my throat closes up

as I fight back the tears,

knowing the ones I love so dearly

are in so much pain.

-

If only life were simpler

If only that bastard got what he deserved

If only this didn't have to happen

If only there was another way...
