The Eternal Question

The Eternal Question

A Poem by lindsay

Running, running,

Where am i going?
Why am i running?

To?
From?
Back?
Forth?
Am I searching too?
I am looking for something
missing someone...
Am I lost?
Why am I lost?
Why do I not know or understand?
And why is this complicated?

Complications-
Why does it have to be this way?
This or that?
Yes or no?
Right or wrong?
Every choice is a wrong choice 
to someone and someone will always be unhappy.
For always and forvever.

Why is it like that?
I wish there could be a happy medium
between the two forever existing extremes,
for it is extremely sad,
people can only see it one way or are another.

Another, we do not have another chance at this.
Or do we?
Do we?
What happens?
Life after death? afterlife?
Life or death?
Do we die before we live?
I think we should live before we die.
We all die and go on.

Where am i going?
Where are we all going?
What are we all doing here-
Right now.
This moment.
what do we all want?

Ah.
What a question.
What a question indeed.
The very question we all ask.
What do i want?
Such destruction these 4 words bring.
Bringing nothing but trouble.
For we all want to run-
run away from it all,
in search or something more
looking for something else-
some other place to be-
for something else to do.
We all want that peace to come-
for there to be another way to live,
before we have to die.
That is all anyone really wants.

We all want to live-
Fully and completely.
We all just want to live.

A bit odd I realize that. I wasn't really aiming for a rhyme scheme, these are just my thoughts mildly organized.

An interesting theme here and many questions left unanswered i think i know the reason for life and why we are all here and where we came from and where we are going but it would take me the remaining part of the evening to really justify my theories to do it justice.
Your poem was nice and had an excellent theme i am sure you are all aware that we have all been here before when god had created a planet with no life and in his master plan he decided to see if humans could eradicate their mistakes time after time,when he gets fed up of the game he destroys the world and makes a new one and we play the game again and again, some would say it's like a parallel universe where we have lived before and we might meet ourselves along the way.
No it is just simply re-cycle the planet and see if man and woman have learnt that there is more to life than materialism that faith must be embraced or we have nothing but the empty lives we brought in to this world on our exit.
ASHES TO ASHES DUST TO DUST would be a good POEM for you TO READ my dear it makes you think.

I love how this entire poem is questions until the end. Even the answers are questions, possible but not definite solutions to what's asked. Until the last small stanza that pretty much answers everything. No matter how we get there, all we want to do is live.
It's really inspiring.
