questions

why was i chosen?what purose do i 
serve?why was my life spared?why do i smoke herb?
why do i go on?why bother i ask
why do i finish what i start?it's part of my task
why do i ask questions?why do i observe?
in order to learn lessons from what's seen and what's heard.
why do i roam in search of these answers?
why does hatred spread wild like a disease such as cancer?
the answers to these questions i wish that i had
though i tend 2 keep smiling when things turn sad.
so what are my intentions 2 do what i must
have faith through my struggles in god do i trust
