 From my mind


I live, breath, play, leap and sleep
Care free child no worries to keep
But please answer why oh why
As the years go by do we live to die?
Transformation from boy to man
Has fate dealt the life long hand?
Somebody out there hear my cry
Why is it that we live to die?

From moon to sun and dark to light
Twenty four hours of day and night.
Days to weeks and months to years
Sands of time bringing home our fears

Ripe plump plumb to withered prune
No way? Really!!! It's way too soon.
An unanswered question hear me sigh
Why oh why do we live to die? Live to die.
