Why can't we see our mistakes
Before we ever make them?
Why can't we take back hurtful words
Before we ever speak them?
Why can't we just mend our hearts
Before they ever become broken?
If we could do all these things, would life be any better?
Why must things always get worse
Before they get better?
Why must we suffer through Hell
Before we can ever glimpse Heaven?
Who says that ten must always come
If things were different, would it just end up looking like more of the same?
Why must we ask questions
Before we can discover the answers?
Why must we build walls
Before we can ever be sheltered?
Why must we be sheltered
Before we can ever break free and be jaded?
If we could have things just the way we wanted them, would we then want them to change?
Can you see where I'm going
Before I ever get there?
Is there always a beginning
Before the end?
Was there something more
Before existence existed?
If we could ever know, would we even know that we knew?
