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...
