Sometimes, I wonder

Sometimes, I wonder why I do what I do.
I wonder, if every task that bears my name,
Is worth the sacrifices that I make.

Sometimes, I wonder why people are the way they are.
Did God made them the way they are,
Or if their experiences have made them the individuals that they are.

Sometimes, I wonder how some like myself,
Can survive in a world filled with evil ways.
I wonder,  what  the powers above believed my role to be, when they sent me down here to be.

Sometimes, I wonder why all living being can’t get along.
Why, men fight over everything  big or small,
In a manner that makes no difference from the apes they evolved from.

Sometimes, I wonder if the earth would hit the sun,
Putting an end to what we have become.
I wonder, if the teachers and leaders we have left,
Can actually save the dark souls that we have become.

I wonder.

Sometimes, I wonder.

To the friend I knew..

It was a cold, dark winter evening,
Another day spent as a drop in the ocean,
Silence hit me and retrospection engulfed me,
When news reached me of your passing.

The brief two years we spent together,
You made me laugh and listened to my blabber,
You were more at home at my house than yours,
People thought that my place was yours.

The years went by and time played its part,
And once again we had become strangers in the journey of life,
Sometimes I wondered where you were,
If you were still as cheerful and without a care.

A decade has gone, since we met and parted,
When I heard that you had left for good.
For a moment my world stood still,
Memories flooded my mind, as I wondered about Gods will.

No matter what people say about the person you were,
I will remember you as the one that smiled without a care.
You may have gone, but the memories you created stay behind,
For those who knew and loved you to hold on to.

May your soul rest in peace
