Am I Unique ?

I smile, I laugh and enjoy,
But I still dunno why?
Tears slide down my eye.

They say I'm a hoyden,
But I still dunno why?
Loneliness stays by my side.

Some say I'm fickle and fey,
But I still dunno why?
Not a sneer comes my way.

You say I'm whimsical and clumsy,
But I still dunno why?
People laugh when they pass by.

I coax and cajole and clog,
But I still dunno why?
Not a single soul answers my why.

Maybe I'm both sweet and sour,
But I still dunno why?
They all have a sly smile when I pass by.
