To be or not to be

To be or not To be

There are those who may not care to see
The violence in our silence
Weeping and wallowing in our own wailing
We wonder why
Treading and toiling thoughtlessly
We force into fruition
That which was never meant to be
We make our own wants our weapon of wear
In our tears, our weapons of tear
Tears trickling even amidst our throbbing thoughts
Dreamless dreams in our sleepless slumbers
But was this not what we wanted
Why then does it wear us out?
That what we thought for us was good
We finally foresee in its un-good
Toiling into our own temptations
But now we see the real deal of our will
That you cannot force to be
That which was never meant to be
To be or not to be
