We Fear Knowledge

I have been thinking all along, 
that the end isn’t something that should it end. 
This was created a long ago for us to pray,
for nothing but for fun. This shouldn’t be called life, 
or why it’s called? 
We should be dull and stupid all on our own. 
This is what we want.
In fact, by logic we should kill, 
not only humans, but the will. 
The earth is waiting for its turn to have a sleep, 
her duty’s over, a trillion years ago. 
Though what we say is true - you can sleep when you die. 
It is called to die, to bring more peace to life… 
but what is life? 
I think it’s just a word.
