    whY???

    Morning’s brightness
    SCREAMED
    Across the African flat land

    The antelope roamed the grassy meadow

    But for the desire to procreate
    Would we be?

    As evening’s sun kiss
    Horizon’s face
    With all eyes on the shimmering glow
    As its reflection Elongates
    Across a Peaceful sea

    Would we be…
    If not for desire?

    The antelope moaned

    Darkness wailed its passing goodbye

    Humans…wonder​

    the never ending quest for understanding...

    ...is just that...NEVER ENDING. for, as long as we live, we will ask "whY?"

    and the river floweth.

    Hmmm... Well, is it "I think; therefore I am" or "I copulate; therefore I am?"

    hmmm...let me see...

    ...Therefore, I Am.

    I live
    Therefore, I am

    I breathe
    Therefore, I live

    No…
    I live within the limits set forth by my creator
    Therefore, I exist

    But for the generosity
    Of the one who molded me,
    I would not be

    HE molded me from dirt
    Shaped me into the form of man
    Therefore, I am

    HE took me
    Blew the breath of life into me
    I became a living soul

    HE nurtured me
    Guided me along the path
    Never forsaking me

    Cared for me
    Even when I went astray
    HE loved me

    I live
    Therefore, I am
    Never true

    I exist
    For HIM that made me
    Nothing more.​
