    There is so much that is ugly

    In this life,

    Suffering and suffering,

    Children suffering,

    People and animals suffering,

    Through no fault of theirs.

    Thoughts keep coming to mind,

    About the purpose of life.

    Why is there so much suffering ?

    Why and why ?

    And most of the time,

    It is humans who cause

    All the suffering.

    Is this the purpose

    Of human life ?

    To cause so much suffering,

    To cause so much destruction

    To the living and non-living

    In this planet of ours?

    God’s purpose,

    And the purpose of human life,

    Is sometimes beyond understanding.

    Negativity is lightning fast
    Positivity is the mild shower
    That follows and cools the heat

    People with the concern for the good is the mild shower of poetic positivity.

    Purpose of Life, a lovely poem, I always wonder about all these sufferings, and ask God why? But yet to get an answer? Why this creation and then destruction, human beings in the middle moving to and fro like the pendulum of a clock, don't know where to go...or how to solve this mysterious puzzle!
