Who Would Have Thought?

Who Would Have thought?
That your nagging doubt in the back of your mind
Was more correct than you wanted all along
Who would have thought?
That these bits of your future were already signed
When you made those choices, though it’s been so long

Who would have fought?
Had you known that we all let each other down
No matter the effort we give to lift each other up
Who would have fought?
Had you seen that no one is perfect and all come around
But too often too late when they see what they gave up

Who would have caught?
If you knew the pain it can take to have a grip
While others hold, let go, and grab onto your heart
Who would have caught?
If you knew you might be praying it all didn’t slip
Through your fingers which were tearing another’s apart

Who would have bought?
Those moments for which you feel your truths been sold
And memories which melancholy won’t allow you to erase
Who would have bought?
Those elated feelings which you feel let you be fooled
Into thinking it was all pieced together with silken lace

Who would have sought?
For answers you now know you just couldn’t catch
Though you questioned others and asked yourself more
Who would have sought?
For endings that tales and stories send you to fetch
Though they fail to mention there’s a trap set at each door

But who would have not?
Kindled a friendship that you hoped would last
And kept someone warm through the worst of his nights
But who would have not?
Waited through what was supposed to be a short fast
And kept an ember burning until pried caused anger to ignite

So why would you?
Have thought that everything was nothing at all
“You messed up,” doesn’t mean you’re all wrong at all
So why would you?
Have though that everything and everyone just let you fall
“They messed up,” doesn’t mean they’re all wrong at all

Why do we?
Choose to ignore each other’s viewpoints--
How people see the same events through different eyes--
Why do we?
Fail to leave this futile, conjecturing space…
And yet pretend to walk away when we’re still running at the same pace
