Really,
Why are you here?

Ever thought about it?

I don't mean on thus forum,
Or even the place you are now.

I really do mean,
Why are you here?

What is this,
Thing called life?

What's it's purpose?
Who's doing it,
Who's idea was it?

Wake up in a five year old human body,
Working out the world around you,
Not fitting in,
Knowing that you are different,
Things in your head,
Tell you stuff you don't understand,
Maybe the five year old mind,
Isn't quite ready to understand it all.

Outside looking in,
Confused,
No able to put in words,
At that time,
To tell anyone.
Knowing,
That,
No one would believe,
Even my parents.

That feeling,
That still there,
Something wrong with the world around you.
Frustration,
Even now,
It's won't go.

With all I've found,
And posted on here,
So far,
There is more.

I'm still being pushed.
Still looking.
Still finding.
Still waiting.

I think it is a good reason. Just on Earth we tend to fight too much.

Not totally related, but I was thinking how beautiful reincarnation is. Some day I will be 18 again and a chance to have a youthful love affair. And it will be me again!

I have heard it said that life is a gift from existence, and that what really matters is love. I have also heard it said that we give our own meanings to life.

I understand what you mean,
But for me this doesn't go far enough,
What you've said is just the surface,
I want to look beyond that.

There are a lot of articles on the net and whole books written on the subject, maybe some of those will help you.

I don't really think about why I'm here so much, more as why am I me & not anyone else, solipsism.
