|Why are we here, are we born just to die?
What comes before, what comes after?
What's the truth, what's the lie?
What comes before birth?
Where is the hereafter?
Will we find hate and tears
or love, light and laughter?
Is the death of our life on this earth, the end?
Or is there more life
around some uncharted bend?
These eternal questions
will they ever be answered?
Or is our future in the hands
of a celestial romancer?
What is our purpose in living this life?
with the seasons
and purpose for strife
maybe our next lives will be more fun
when our presence on Earth is over and done
but no one can say, unless they've been there
and so I will end this poem with a prayer
enjoy your life now, make the best of your years
after you're gone, there will be time for tears
all we know for certain, is this life we now live
share your love, share your wealth
give all you can give
