I don't know from where this darkness comes

I am more often an optimist than a pessimist

 

I don't know why all of life is drab and grey

I am no stranger to pleasure and delight

 

I don't know why sadness blankets every joy

I am in every way overwhelmingly blessed

 

I dont know why I feel alone and overlooked

I am not without family and friendships

 

I don't know why I believe I have no value

I am not unimportant in my various fields

 

I know only that even, gripped by chill despair

I must praise Him, for I have no other choice

 


I Don't Know
