“If This Is All There Is”
If this is all there is,
The here and the now
And nothing after
When we let out our last breath
Then we’re all wasting our time
So let’s waste it as we see fit,
Feed on lust, lies, sins, all of it.
What does it matter?
It doesn’t matter,
It never mattered.
If all we are is dust
And there is only matter
Then what’s the point of this
Period of time we call life?
If we all exist for a little time
And then disappear into nothing
Then do any of us really live
And if so, what’s the point of it?
Who has the answers to these questions?
Only a true fool would say
These questions don’t matter.
I’d like an answer that satisfies
My heart and my mind,
I don’t want excuses,
I want to hear the best answers
The so-called smartest and wisest can offer.
I don’t want theories that hold no weight,
I don’t want subjective nothingness,
I don’t want answers to hypothetical existence,
I want the real thing, it has to be something of substance,
I don’t want the superficial and hollow,
I want something true and something sure.
The world’s wisdom can’t answer these questions.
The worldings fail to give the answers,
All that the worldlings give amounts to
Hollow, shallow, superficial, insufficient,
Sad attempts by usaved souls to give
What they cannot because they reject
The Way and the Truth and Life,
So all they know is confusion, falsehood, and death.
