Sometimes I Wonder

Sometimes I wonder why bad things happen

If people are intrinsically good

And deserve the benefit of the doubt

Yet there is a rotten apple in every bunch


Sometimes I wonder why bad things happen to me

If I live my life as best I can

And try to spread goodness and cheer

Yet you violated me, body and mind


Sometimes I wonder why bad things never happen to you

If you are a vile human being

And infected me with your diseased soul

Yet you are immune to the consequences  


Sometimes I wonder who I would have been

If I had never met you

And lived a happy life

I’d be the best version of me


Sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever find my true self

And where she is hiding

Lost in this limbo

Of healing, strength, and determination
