Counting Stars

Why are we born just
to die?
Left to count the
stars until they
fade
They say we live to
learn lessons
But where do we take
this knowledge?
We live to get our
hearts broken
And our knees
scraped
but in the end
What does the pain
give us?
The strength to hurt
another day?
So I sit here
counting the stars 
Until I too, fade
away
