Why can't you do it?

Why can't you do it?
They ask
When everyone else can
Why can't you do it?
When you studied hard
Maybe you don't understand
Maybe you didn't study enough
Maybe you don't want to

Why can't you do it?
Is it because you are lazy?
Everyone else can do it
You just need to try harder
Maybe you pretend to work
Maybe you dont want to

Why can't you do it?
They ask

Well, Why should I do it?
I ask

Something I dont want to.
Why should i try hard?
When I'm trying for something I dont want
Why must i follow?
When i can lead

Why must I compete for a mountain top?
When the whole world lies beneath me.

This poem is about: 
Our world
