Why not me?


Why not me?

There’s this thing that exists, 
But, do I describe it as a ‘thing’?
My five senses refuse to make it tangible, 
Then, does that mean it’s not real? 
If it’s not real, then does it exist?

Some people have it, others crave it.

Some people cry over it, 
Yet, there are those who can’t stop smiling.
Others swipe angry tears, and even curse.

How can one thing, this ‘thing’ bring about so many emotions?

Is such a ‘thing’ so powerful?

Then why have I not felt it?
Why has it not ruled me?
Why does it refuse to touch me?
