Life's misery

Why is life such a misery?
We are born in a word
that is decaying.
Diseases, war, vanity,
and worseless desires have taken over.
Of all the creatures
God created, humans
are the most destructive.
Why is life such a misery?
The minute we are born,
we start our passage to death.
We have to struggle for every atom of air we breath.
There is no garden of Eden for us.
The descendant of Adan and Eve were born to suffer.
Our destiny, a decaying world,
humans own creation,
our own misery to live and die for.
