They say bad things happen for a reason
That pain can be the best the best teacher
Mistakes made means a lesson learned
Grief builds a stronger person.
Maybe I don’t want to be wiser
Turning my past into lessons for tomorrow
And naming all that I’ve lost “experience”
What if the pain I feel isn’t just a harsh lesson
But the reason I never want to wake up?
Maybe my mistakes are more than lessons
They remind me every day what I regret
“Learning” won’t justify the pain I’ve caused
Merciless mistakes, never can they be altered.
How can they say everything happens for a reason
I doubt the rationale behind this unceasing hurt
Wonder what explanation can fix this hole in my heart
When my head cannot reason because of my soul’s cries.
They say that bad things happen for a reason
What if I don’t want to know the answers?
Preferring to live stupidly in a world without pain
Where I don’t have to think to find happiness.
