Perplexity









I must admit I don't understand,

Why I hate to love and love to hate;

So it is... things that relate to man.

 

I swear to honor with ring on hand,

Then walk away as my vows I break;

I must admit I don't understand.

 

I pledge love for eternity's span,

Then soon forget my promises made;

So it is... things that relate to man.

 

To have a child some do all they can,

Other's abort, precious life they take;

I must admit I don't understand.

 

I flee God, yet pray help from his hand,

His name I praise yet soon in vain take;

So it is... things that relate to man.

 

For as long as the hour glass sifts sand,

As long as darkness falls and day breaks;

I must admit I don't understand,

So it is... things that relate to man.
