Does it really matter

Does it really matter?

Love or lust
Which will last?
For a moment or forever
Does it really matter?

Joy or pain
Over and over again
Suffer alone or together
Does it really matter?

Sadness or happiness
Which one comes first?
Maybe now or later
Does it really matter?

Shame or pride
Take both in a stride
It’s now or never
Does it really matter?

Rich or poor
Both bad for sure
Gutter or alter
Does it really matter?

Still or in motion
Depends on the situation
Get a hold or falter
Does it really matter?

Ephemeral or permanent
Virtues and friendship forgotten
For worst or better
Does it really matter?

God or Godless
One should be selfless
Misfits or suitors
Does it really matter?

Dead or alive
We need first to survive
Jitters or glitters
Does it really matter?

In the beginning or end
What’s mankind’s intent?
God creates or mankind the creator
Does it really matter?
