Poem: Why? Just Why?

(…Today, my illness put my heart in a vice. I’m physically struggling. It seriously feels like my existence doesn’t matter.)

Why? Just Why?

why am i alive
what value do i offer
why am i fighting
as if there was a reason

why do i try
what comes next
why do i believe
that hope still exists

why is it me
what’s even happening
why do i struggle
and fight to live every day

why? just why?
what is there to know
why must i
believe in hope?

i dont know
i cant know
i dont even want to know
why
