I wonder why he told me he was fine
When he was dying inside.
I wonder why she put kohl on her eyes
Although it made her cry.
I wonder why he never felt free
To explain his bitter tragedy.
I wonder why she stayed quiet
Through all the years of misery.
I wonder what made him believe
That he had a heart of steel.
I wonder if it was her mother
Who told her her heart was fragile as a feather.
I wonder why they felt it was their duty
To obey the rules put down by this entity-
This monster we call Society.
