The question persists



Born needy
Family loves
Friends recognize
Shelter

Then it breaks
Stranger he becomes
Love granted, not respect
Rebels

Sometimes ambitions
A lot confused
Sometimes restless
A lot misunderstood

Moves on
"You need to settle down"
Tries to resist
Fails

Wife
Kids
Debt
Serve

Busy
Tired
Responsible
Cools 'down'

Works for A
Works for B
Works for C
Slowly earns it back

On a hot summer night
When time stands still
The question persists
"Why was I born?"

  1. This probably is most simplified version of the cycle of life.... the interesting thing is that whether you'll 'live' life or just 'exist' will depend on the answer to the last line.... "Why was I born?"

  2. Good thought. I would like to add
    I was born because I wanted it
    that way,
    My quest -
    Who am I ?
    Not easy
    May take few lives
    to understand
    Few more
    to rectify
    and
    few more
    to fructify
    that is
    Sat- Chit - Anand
