Why Me?


Did I do something

that led me to this?

To suffer at the hands

of my own nemisis?

Did I cross someone

or do anyone wrong?

Have I proven to be of the weak

and not of the strong?

Did I err in my ways

or make a mistake?

Have I hurt anyone

or caused heartache?

Was I just chosen,

to suffer this fate?

Knowing there's no way

I can retaliate?

Is it my lot in life,

that I painfully die?

Do I just give up

and meekly comply?

Did I do anything evil

to bring on punishment?

Is this my trial,

my consequent?

Will I ever be forgiven?

Will I ever be set free?

Will I ever get an answer,

to my question, 'Why me?'
