We all wonder why !!! and if there is a because!!!


A Why and Because

Why do we care so much
Only to cry ?
Why do we strive so hard
Only to die ?

Why do we believe
When there is no proof ?
Why pray to God
Who seems so aloof ?

Why believe there’s a soul
We cannot see ?
Why believe in life after death
That cannot be ?

We care because
We do have a soul.
We strive because
Of our unknown goal.

We believe because
Our hearts tell us so.
We pray because
We need help so.

We believe there’s a soul
Because we feel it’s so
We believe in life after death
So we can let go.


God Bless

Luke
