What is life I wonder?
What’s the purpose of my existence?
How did we all come to life?
And how was it all even created?
As a child I rummaged my brain for answers but could find none
And I wanted a definite answer
Opened the Google homepage, and I typed “What is life” and the first sentence I read was that life, “The definition of life is controversial”
The child inside me was baffled, I didn’t know what to say and my brain was left addled
The religious books describe it as the friendship between man and God
The purpose being to glorify the latter according to the Bible
Have everlasting love and peace says the Gita
And the Quran tells me that I’m his devotee on earth
But why do I see war if the purpose of our existence is to make peace?
Why do I find lies when we should be saying the truth?
Why do we find perfidious relationships when love is all we need?
Why has the world grown this way? Again left speechless and I don’t know what to say
We’ve stepped into the outer space but find it hard to step out of our comfort zone
Have reached the moon but can’t reach out to a stranger
We’ve searched for the stars but fail to appreciate our real heroes
And we’ve aimed so big that we’ve been caught up in our little burrows
So here I stand today urging you to start that unbegun conversation
To show your love to people that matter
To leave behind the lies, the war, the hatred
And become that someone you consider sacred
I know this might be too deep,I need to calm down
Should gather myself and not have an emotional breakdown
But today I feel the need to speak because I don’t wanna drown
I want to be free and get rid of that frown
Might as well wonder what you can do? So here I am for you
Suggesting a simple solution and giving you a clue
Take a deep breath like that innocent child
Because today I’ve left you with questions you might wanna rewind
