Why was I Born ?

Pic - Courtesy - Canvas Art Prints
Why was I born ? Lord!, wont you answer me
Was I to be a mute witness
As my friends in this journey
Reached out back to you
Why me ? looking up at you pitifully

Why was I born? Lord!, wont you listen to me
Was I to be happy with myself
While my comrades in this journey
Lay sick and poor, lay at your behest
Why me ? why was I alone loaded and healthy

Why was I born ? Lord!, wont you lend me your ears
Was I alone, to be safe and secure
Whilst you unleashed your fury on them
As nature roared and wiped out lives,
Why me ? Warm and cozy at home all these years

Why was I born ? Lord!, please do reply
In these years of modernity
When colour and creed are not key
After all my forerunners faced all shame
Why me ? In all honour and pride; eyes dry

Why was I born ? Lord!, are you still there.
Why the silence ? Aren`t my cries heard ?
Lord!, at last I hear thou voice
“My child, your friends, all under my wing
Learning a lesson, you learning down there”

Hi scribblez,

You perceived it pretty perfectly.

I guess all bloggers are deep thinkers, all may not be philosophical, but all do think.

What do you say.? Don`t you ?



Hey, I know I think...Am a thinking machine...But it is all useless stuff...And ya, only people who can think and be fine to express wht they think can blog! :)
