by Summer

I often wondered
How she could leave
I was five, my sister was four
My brother was three
I know that she was young
But so were we

And I don’t think any reason
Could ever satisfy me

My father was a native
Of this land
He told me of Great Spirits
And destruction by the white man
Two hundred years now
And we’re still trying to get back up

And I don’t think any reason
Could ever satisfy us

So many years gone by
And now we’re grown
The hurt in our hearts has dulled
But still visits us when we’re alone
She says, “There’s just so many things
You couldn’t have known.”

But I don’t think any reason
How could any reason
Is there any reason?

Useless explanations
Random collections of words

I don’t think any reason
How could any reason
How could any reason
Ever pacify her?
