Why are We here...?

We each write to share a feeling,
hoping others will read,
reading their comments,
while trying to make sense...

Why have we come here?
To grow, to know, to show;
ours that we live,
wanting to give...

Looking for a response,
maybe not, still we're here,
sharing a fear,
holding it near...

Sharing love, hate, confusion;
seeing past the delusion,
questioning all that exist,
our feelings we cant resist...

So many ways of perception,
many in deception,
it is my confession,
forgive my transgression...

What many think is real,
isnt a big deal,
this is how I feel,
in prayer I kneel...

You may not believe the way I do,
who's to say what's true?
Many are the few,
thatll see anyone through...

All I know,
is what I know;
daily I grow,
tired of the world's show...

So I write for you to read,
while feeling my heart bleed,
planting a seed,
love is all we need...
