poem ~ why do you

What are you fighting
down deep in your heart?
When all that you want
is a fresh new start. 

Why do you think 
running from pain will cure you?
When the key to the pain
is to let it work through you.

Why do you feel
you're not gonna make it?
When all that you've been asked
is to just not fake it.

Why don't you believe
that it will all work out?
When if you looked back on your life
you wouldn't have any doubts.

Why do you pretend
that you don't even care? 
When if you looked deeper
there still is love there.

Why do you do
the very things you despise?
When if you had a little more grace
it all might be easier to take.

What will it take
to get you to see?
For to have faith means
you believe in a vision yet to be.
