Life’s Whys and Wherefores

Everything happens for a reason they say

I follow this philosophy every day

Sometimes I ponder the point of pain

And why we must suffer it time and again

Do we learn from it?

Does it make us strong?

The answer’s in our hands all along

Do what you will

Act as you choose

Each lesson’s given as a gift

We can reject or use

Do we grow? Do we evolve

Perhaps that’s more effort than we want to involve.
