The Reason

The Reason

A Poem by The Nameless

The Reason, written for a contest to fit the song from Skrillex -


What is the reason for us to live?
The reason of all there is on Earth?
The reason for time and space?
And everything else we have to face?

What is the reason for joy and pain?
All the coincidences and things that seem strange?
What is the reason for hatred and love?
Fate, fortune, good and bad luck?

I know it seems insane
Most kinds of religions can't be explained
But still somewhere deep here inside
There's some kind of hope trying to hide

What is the reason for it all?
What is the reason we stand and we fall?
How can such fine detail appear out of nothing?
Such great stories of truth be bluffing?

What is the reason for it all?
What is the reason we choose to stand tall?
How can our world be so awesomely complicated?
That we take thousands of lifetimes to understand it?

What is the reason? Why should there be?
Is the whole world wondering or is it just me?
My question is always at the back of my mind
But the book of answers and not yet been kind

So I go out now and ask the world
Will they answer me, or are they also trying to learn?
What is the reason? What is the truth?
For the answer you choose there may never be proof

Haha, thanks :P
Really great piece....asking great questions...'why do we exist' and many questions like this are still undiscovered...we only live with some facts like 'BIG BANG' theory...etc...loved it...keep writing.
