Have you ever given up on life?
I have.
Have you ever wanted just to die?
I have.
Have you ever wondered what's the use
Christian? Moslem? Buddhist? Jew?
I have.

Have you ever longed to see
What lies beyond the grave?
What is life, what is death?
The truth is so hard to find.
What is there, what is there not?
Who knows? Not I, for who am I?

Have you ever felt for a beggar
Just to find yourself the same?
Have you ever grieved for a blind man
Just to find you've never seen?
Or wept at the death of a loved one
To find that you've never lived?
I have.

THE END
