As we grow up
And learn things
To survive
Wondering who we are.

As we use our new
Honed skills
For deception
Wondering what we’ve done.

As we start to learn
Words and phrases
For spite
Wondering what we’ve said.

As we dream about other
Places we want to go to
But stay behind in the end
Wondering where we’ve been.

As we meet our maker
And our life flashes
Before our eyes
Wondering if it was all true.

As we look back
Upon our lives
Looking for meanings
Wondering if it meant anything.
