What's The Point Of Living?



What's the point of living if we have to die?
What's the point of dying if we don't know why?

What's the point of living if we have no goal?
What's the point of dying if there's loss of soul?

What's the point of living if we have no lust?
What's the point of dying if there's no sure trust?

What's the point of living if we have no peace?
What's the point of dying if there's no release?

What's the point of living if we have no dance?
What's the point of dying if there's no last chance?

What's the point of living if we have no hope?
What's the point of dying if there's no real scope?

What's the point of living if we have no joy?
What's the point of dying if there's no Mc Coy?

What's the point of living if we have no love?
What's the point of dying if there's no above?

What's the point of living if we never learn?
What's the point of dying if there's no return?

What's the point of living if we have to die?
What's the point of dying if we don't know why?
