"Art, in itself, is an attempt to bring order out of chaos."-Stephan Sodeim

I hear people asking:
Who are we?
Who am i, who are you?
What the hell are we doing here?
Why, why, WHY?

I can't get a concrete answer.
I can't find it in a book,or from anyone else.

No answer to why we run and fear, breathe and bleed.
To why we smile and laugh and become whoever we are.

But should we spend our life looking?
Should we be in a constant incomplete state?
Is that what life's about?
I don't believe it is.

Why not dance, give hugs,
laugh not for a reason, but because we want to.
Why not live to live, not to look.

Listen to birds, climb a tree,
run through the hills,
Make a friend, tell a joke,
make an impact.

Whatever you choose.
Hey, there's nothing to loose.

So, next time you wonder "Why?"
i'll ask, "Why not?"
And we'll smile, just because.

It's about life, i guess. Just being young, and enjoying life. Not for any reason or anyone else's benefit. I guess i wrote it just, to write it
