Life as we live it

The sun sets and rises,

the tide rises and falls.

The tree that now stands so sturdy,

One day, alas! shall fall.

Is this what life is?

We toil so hard, for so long 

to rise up;

knowing one day we shall lay in peace.

Is this us being smart ? or 

are we just dumb and foolish?

I believe

purpose - is true

life - is reasonable

but the pursuit is not.

Our time is short

but know that our days are long,

And that life is not just some chase.
