As time travels to and fro,
Mornings turns to nights,
But I kept my mind afloat
With questions of great mights,
Day after day
I kept asking myself,
Even when the answers delay,
I kept on asking within myself,
Why are the decent ones ugly?
Why do the beautiful ones remain yet unborn?
As we are still ruled by the ugly?
When will the beautiful ones be born?
I asked questions without answer,
And they ate through me like cancer….
