The notion of, Why bother?

Tell me... Why do you do if you do?

Why you don't if you don't?

It doesn't matter. And I don't know why I care.
I do. It's frustrating.
And I wonder why bother?
When I know for undetermined fact.
There's a point to all of this.
But there is no such thing.
Not now. Not ... Just not.

If I could only know why?
If I could only have ...
Why can't I know?
Is it too much?
How badly did ...
To know ...
And me, am I the only..?

Reflections tell me
I am one of few...
Unsettling. It is.

Restless holds it more.
Unease and despite ...
That I can never say.
I can never tell.
I am bound by...
Nothing I can
tell anyone.

then I would
have to know...
Why Bother?
This was a journal entry some time ago. It was recommended to me that I submit it as a poem. So here it is.

I was going to edit out *sigh* however, if it wasn't for that word the rest would not have followed. Not a suitable title either. It is the reason for the poem.

Please do not copy, use or print this poem without explicit written permission from myself, the writer of this poem. As long as I get the credit, chances are I will allow you to do so. Please show the same respect I wold show you.

Thank you.
