Simple, what is life?


What is it

Why do we exist 

Why is there pain

Living this life with much to lose and nothing to gain 

I've contemplated what life is 

And for the most part, I don't understand it

Why live if we'll die

Why smile if we'll cry

Because this is life

And each everyday means we've overcome some dark nights

And although things may not go our way 

My God still wakes us up to see another day 

So again 

What is life?
