“Why Should I?”

Eva Dominguez, Staff Writer

Do I belong?

Well I thought I did,

I was fooled thinking I could trust your words,

Using beautiful words, to string a web of lies.

Do I fit in?

You say that I do, they all do

But I feel like an outsider,

Set astray from the others,

An outcast

Like a puzzle piece that doesn’t belong.

Who am I?

One day I’m me and the next I am someone else

Someone I don’t know,

Someone who doesn’t remember wrong from right

Someone who doesn’t understand.

Do you love me?

You say yes, but why should I believe your,

Cold lies,

Hurtful words,

Scared faces.

I don’t believe you

And why should I?
