    What are we? Human beings, yes, that is quite an inarguable truth
    Are we eternal? This inquiry grows as we swiftly relinquish or youth
    What makes us live? Having spirit doesn’t account for soul, in sooth
    Why are we here? Tis’ an enigma even for the most tenacious sleuth
    What’s the meaning of life? Time is squandered thinking up an excuse
    Where did we come from? We find fossils yet never retain any proof
    Are we alone? Cells ingrained in us footprints as we walk to phone booths
    Can we ever be safe? We irrationally attempt at security under our roofs
    What’s worth fighting for? Struggles permeate the earth leaving it uncouth
    Stop, too many questions vex my inner demons leaving me unsatisfied with what I am aware of.
    There’s good in people! Benevolence is bountiful as incandescence is bright
    There’s evil in people! It lies in wait as the moon does during twilight
    Time never stops! We don’t have enough of it yet there’s more in sight
    Death is inevitable! This fact leaves many questioning their callous plight
    Life is hard! We mustn't be inthralled by shameful acts and become contrite
    There’s always light! Even when the winter solstice embodies a cloudy night
    Seeing is believing! That’s why faith must be held desperately tight
    Love is real! Though elusive to many it is a spark, prepared to ignite
    Some things are worth dying for! Patriotism, people, freedom of life
    Stop, stop, these facts cloud my perception now I’m baffled beyond understanding with a lack thereof.
