I am here
But am I really here
My very existence
As already been programmed over a million years ago
Time is like a flowing stream of water
See how it flows
They say we determine our actions
But I say God determines it for us
Our ability to succeed is not solely by strives and struggle
 I saw him die but at that moment he was still alive
It was 10 am but he died half past five
What if our very existence is just a mere dream?
And the reality is not exactly what it seem
I am here
But am really here
I am having dinner with a stranger
Who I treat like a wife
And suddenly every thing goes dark
And I am cut off by a knife
My brain seizes to work
And I can remember my first name
Then I ask myself what is this kind of game
My arms are making movement which I can not control
The energy is coming from a place I do not know
Scientists are giving crazy explanations
But all these assertions will in the future met condemnation
