Living

Why is life so hard?
Why after thousands
of years haven’t we
learned a thing?
Why is living so
fraught with pitfalls
Caused by others
never yourself?
Why is it that we
fight everyday
No matter how
small or big
the problems?
Why is it that
we are surrounded
by people yet are
so alone?
Why is living so
hard?
Soon the air we
breathe shall be
taxed
Why is life never
for living
but only to pay
bills, taxes and
be a slave to
the system?
Why do we live to
work and not
work to live?
What is life for?
What and who are
we living for?
