Weird Thought by godisablack(m): 9:25am On Feb 22, 2019

I always ask myself
Why Children don't talk?
Why are they blind first at birth?
Why don't they walk?
Why don't they have past memory?
Why do they come naked?
Why do they cry once they're born?
And when they don't
Why do we compel them to?

Why all the why in this life?
Why are we really here?
Is it to live and die?
What's the purpose of Scorpion in this world?
To sting?
The housefly, the bedbug and rest,
What really are they here for?

Why are we bundled in this jungle?
Of wickedness and forever misery
Why do education we acquire
And knowledge we chase still expire?
Why is time relevant?
Why not just now?
Why do we age?
Why can't a perfect god
Make our imperfection perfect?

Why is the eye two,
The ears, the nostril, the leg and hands?
And the mouth one
Isn't for a purpose?

Let now not be the time I die
Until my why get a reply
That would be just, not lies
I'll always pry
