The Boundless Questioning of Death

Are we born to live, Or are we born to die? Death's inevitable So what's more to life You can be rich as ever Yet still afford to die By every breath I feel approaching mine What is the purpose, or the goal of this? Is one judged by their holiness But how to live a holy life? When every night brings blackened skies And even during'st the brightest day When the sun is smiling away There will still be a dark cloud, vision Eventually approaching in the distance

Perhaps the purpose of life is to discover what one's purpose is/how to really be happy? I see no greater real genius than in being happy.

You have posed a lot of questions here. By the end of the day though I think we're all here just to do as much good as we can, I see this Life as a stepping stone to the next? I will try focusing on the Sun, instead of the dark cloud hovering behind.

Yeah, it's always looming, isn't it? So grab the brightest thing you can do, like write a poem, and DO it with heart and soul, and forget about that darkness for a while.

Wise words, Darren, will do. It is good therapy and soothing for the mind and soul.
