Why is everyone so bitter?
Full of bitterness,
Why is everyone so bitter?
We’re all full of hate and rage,
Drowning it out with bitter drinks.
Drowning in bitter alcohol,
All bitter and full of bitterness!
Bitter foods to drown out bitter sorrows,
Tasteless foods to go with tasteless emotions.
Take a bitter orange,
It might taste bitter or sour to you,
But some can only taste it as bittersweet.
Whether out bitterness over lost love,
A lost child,
Or simple mourning for the world!
You can surround yourself with hedges of bitterbrush,
Trying to ignore the weeping earth,
As it drowns in its bitter tears.
We are all drowning in bitterness.
