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.
