Why do I speed up when we get to a yellow light?
Why do you take the short way home when the long route offers the beautiful view?
Why can’t you find a spouse or have a child?
Why is your marriage is failing?
Why did the chicken cross the road?
So many things and so many reasons I just don’t know.
I don’t know why people die when they’re young
Or before they get to meet their first grandchild.
I don’t know why people stop praying
And make so many rules that not even Jesus could have followed them.
I don’t know why there are more fireflies in the country or what their purpose is …
