The Reason

Stevie Smith

          My life is vile
          I hate it so
          I'll wait awhile
          And then I'll go.

          Why wait at all?
          Hope springs alive,
          Good may befall
          I yet may thrive.

It is because I can't make up my mind
If God is good, impotent or unkind.
