Why Do People

by Alon Calinao Dy

Why do people lie
When they can tell the truth?

Why do people need money
When they can live a simple life?

Why do people hate their jobs
When millions of people have no jobs?

Why do people kill each other
When they could love one another?

Why do rich people make a fortune
When poor people die of famine?

Why do people drink alcohol
When they know it kills them all?

Why do people still smoke
When they have a family history of stroke?

Why do people become prostitutes
When they could have positive attributes?

Why do people need to worry
When they could live in peace and harmony?

Why do people question God
When things start to get odd?

Why do people hate their fate
When it's them who create?
