For A Reason
(c) 2014 by earl kayoss

There are angels in quicksand and i cannot reach them.
Children with knowledge that no one should teach them.
And slain on the altar for no rhyme or reason,
Lies youth with its heart wide open and bleeding.
And life goes on. Life goes on.

Life goes on through the birth and the death and the madness.
Life goes on through the wicked brutality of sadness.
Through the miserable failed attempts to end it:
An atrocity that has God in tears and offended.
Life goes on…
For a reason. For a reason.

There are voices crying out but I cannot hear them.
To know they are out there, i don’t need to be near them.
Mothers with babies whose breathing is shallow.
I’ve been pierced through the wing, through my heart, by an arrow.
And life goes on. Life goes on.

Life goes on through the withering display of heartless.
Life goes on through the light and the strangling darkness.
Through the joy and the pain and the meetings in progress.
Through the days when we’re tangled in time and in nonsense.
Life goes on.
For a reason.
For a reason.

I smiled and I sighed and I said, “Do you know me?”
You laughed and you thought that you might as well love me.
I am yours for a reason.
You are mine for a reason.
For a reason.
For a reason.
