Why Do We Live?Why do we live?
Like the life cycle of leaves,
Like the journey of geese,
Like the adventure of water particles,
Like getting out of bed every day,
Our lives drive around the oval track.
Once in a while, we encounter things
Making our lives better
Like sports, gifts, new school years, holidays
But face it
Life: go to school, get a job, get old, retire, and die
And we waste a third of our lives sleeping
So…… why do we live?
Then my friends smile brightly,
Then my family laughs heartily,
Then with acknowledgment, I grin confidently,
Then I realize
This is why I live: love.
Why do you live?
