Why you and why not me?

Why you and why not me?
Why?

Because you have Eden
flowing from the tips of your fingers
and I have nothing but despair.

You have the stars lightening your way
in a galaxy breeding with night
and I have nothing but darkness.

You have flowers blooming
from all your wounds
and I have nothing but bundles of pain.

You have showers of love
dripping on you from above
and I am aching for a salve.

You have a beautiful journey
with roads sprinkled in roses
and I have pathways littered with thorns.

You have everything
and I have nothing

Why?
Why you and why not me?
