Why do we, humans die?
Some turtles live more than 300 years
Our days short, filled with fears
And yet we don’t want to lie
Down under the ground that feeds trees
That even live for thousands of years
Without traveling, craving or some cheers
Unlike us, but we die despite all the tears.
What’s with that? Look at our brain
Unlimited possibilities, built to sustain
Knowledge, joy, growth, or any pain
But suddenly, all of it down the drain.
What about our cells, forever duplicating
Does someone dare stating
Why it just stops, giving birth to this godforsaken
Aging and dying, that we keep hating?
Even though it’s familiar, part of live some say
Cause we’ve all seen it, felt it, can’t escape its way
Yet it doesn’t make any sense, what’s going on?
Not afraid, just some questions to ponder on…
