the will to life

What makes man love so blindly Why does man love so blindly What makes man love at first sight Why does the sight of her fill man with delight What can man do to try to forget Why does man do things he will soon regret What can man do to stop getting annoyed Why can't love be something man can avoid What makes this will to love so strong Why does man only find women to which with them it feels so wrong, and never right What is the reason why I can't find the one for me Why am I so particular, what isn't there that I wish I could see What makes me complicate this innate, simple, organic matter Why couldn't she be a little darker, lighter, skinnier, fatter What makes me think that I'd be settling for less than I wanted Why did I only decide now that this issue should be confronted What is life without love, for love is essential Why does the fact that it's essential drive me mental What made me love so blindly I have no idea (according to Arthur Schopenhauer, 'the will to life' is a primitive and very superficial force that makes people create hopefully well balanced offspring, not the more complex notion of love, love is the hoax)
