What is the purpose of my existence?
Why am I here?
 Is it to bring joy to the life of others?
Or to spread despair
What is fulfillment?
And when do we succeed
Is the yardstick to prosperity?
Wealth or greed?
Where do we go from here?
And when will I meet God?
Is there really heaven out there? 
Or is it just a fraud
What is true happiness?
And how can achieve it?
Because my life has been full of ups and downs
Sometimes all I want to do is leave it
What is love?
And where can I find it?
Is it for sale at the market place?
Because I will love to buy it
Why do I ask all these questions that I speak?
I am astounded by this world
And my curiosity has reached the peak
