Who am I?
Why am I here?
Is life to love
Or a thing to fear?

Why am I?
Why do I live?
Am I to take
Or am I to give?

What use am I?
What can I do?
Were you my friend
Or just one I knew?

Is there love?
Is it great?
May I love
Or must I wait?

What is love?
I really don’t know,
Is it just there
Or does it grow?

Who are my friends?
Who are my foes?
Can I trust anyone?
Nobody knows.

Why am I happy?
Why do I cry?
Why am I living?
When do I die?
