What is It |
by Marc Carver

There must be some reason
I wake up in the morning.
There must be some reason
that guy on the phone wakes me up
to sell me something
I don't need.

There has to be a reason
the sun sometimes shines
and I feel half alive
the problem is
I don't know what it is.

Marc Carver has published six books of poetry and works as an editor for a site in New York. He has had about three hundred poems published around the world but most of all he hopes people enjoy his work and it inspires them to pick up the pen and turn the tv off.
