to her ...

Why do I live?
Live to only perish once.
Live to putrefy within dust.
I live each day in...,
each day out.
My mind focused not on what life’s about.
I live to become nothing but a...,
nothing but a ...
a body without a soul that is dead.
 
Why do I?

(2015)

i thought of this today after hearing of the death of a dear soul i once knew

life and death

Don't you believe in eternal life ? I do. I believe you and I have precious beautiful
souls that were mean't to live forever. St. John 3;16.

You're alive, and that's no mistake! You live for a reason! You live to express yourself -- you have a purpose for sure. And if nothing else, you live to be happy-- happy for yourself and those around you! I've also been there, questioning myself and whatnot, and I'm telling you thinking like that can be detrimental. So don't do it!! LolGreat poem friend, keep it up! :)-Duce
