So Many Mysteries

Our lives are a mystery
in so many ways;
All unanswered questions
that never go away.

What then is our purpose?
We ponder and think.
Good deeds make us happy;
What else could it be?

Why so much hatred?
It really makes no sense!
We’re all God’s children,
a concept some embrace.

Unconditional love we seek;
We fail to offer in return.
A stubborn pride inside us
steals a love to share.

What then is our purpose
in this marathon event?
Our life in this world
is a mystery in itself.
