The Most Important Question

The Most Important Question

 

We have all heard

Sometime in our lives

Someone, perhaps ourselves

In a moment of self pity

Or in the depths of despair

Ask why?   Why me?

 

Why am I here?

Why was I ever born?

Is it only to experience

Suffering and pain?

To struggle to maintain my life

In some barren existence

From day to day?

 

Or have we been given life

To make a choice

Whether to use our imaginations

And all our many resources,

All of our energies

To create a world around us

In which love and happiness

Joy, beauty and harmony

Abound and fulfill us

And all those who share our lives

 

Or to create a world

Of dust and ash?
