Tell Me, Please

Tags: questions

Thanks to Dreamcatcher, whose comment in the Poetry Challenge forum thread inspired this

do I still have to stay?
do I still have to care?
tell me, please, why should I?
tell me, please, who says so?

do I still have to show up?
do I still have to try?
tell me, please, what's the point?
tell me, please, when will I know?

do I still have to smile?
do I still have to pretend?
tell me, please, where did the time go?
tell me, please, how did it slip away?

do you know the who-what-where-when-why and how of it all?
tell me, please
