Because ~ Celine Hatting

Because there is so much pain in the world
Because I don't know how not to notice the tragedy
Because this isn't a phase
Because we're sick of waiting
Because people are always leaving
Because the silence is too loud

Because all the pretty daydreams stay plans
Because gold rusts
Because God allows torture
Because we allow the torture of others
Because we're all cynical sadists
Because we're all disappointed idealists

Because we were taught, way back
        when we were little, that one may never
                 start a sentence with 'because'.
