Why? – A Poem

By Kathryn Cambrea

Why do we do what we do?

Are we motivated by the world,

Another person,

Our own intuition?


Why are we who we are?

Did we choose to fit a specific description,





Why do we care what others say about us?

Do we think that their words validate our sense of inferiority,

Lack of beauty,

Absence of worth?


Meanwhile, why do we continue thinking this way?

Are we giving power to those same people in hopes that they will find





If we know that we have these traits, why search for justification?

For when passion is inside you, the only judge who could ever prove its existence


Is you.
