Sometimes I wonder...why?

by Cathlyn Cartier

Sometimes I wonder…why?
do I bother to try
when I am such a failure
as a mother; a wife; a human being.

I wonder… why?
do I ever think things will change
when everything thing I have worked to accomplish
just crumbles and falls to dust at my feet.

Wonder … why?
should I continue to struggle against the flow,
when life has shown time and again
that it will only sweep me up in the current
and discard me; beaten, bruised and scarred wherever it will.

Something I'm sure we've all asked ourselves one time or another. Nicely stated Cathlyn...good drama. Hope it works out for you.

I suspect most people on this site are more self judgmental than most groups. We tend to be more self inspecting! Nice write.
