The Tao Is Tao (156)



                                                     Why am I alone
                                                   when they cheer?
                                                      Why can't I cry
                                                  when they weep?
                                                Why do the rhythms
                                          of their music not move me?
                                               Why do I always see
                                          the darkness in their light?
                                        Why do I alone despair when
                                          they are filled with triumph?
                                          Why does this food taste
                                                        like this?
