Purpose


I always questioned the existence of a God, but never of a divinity. See, the divinity of the trinity never really made sense to me and honestly I don't know if I want to live to be infinity. So okay, I'll live for today, but these flashing lights and lambo doors make me question what I'm living for. If I have a purpose I'm not getting it, but the right mix of this alcohol and women make me feel like I'm getting it. If there's a higher being then where is my inner meaning. Am I just living to die with the hope I'll leave a few people that will cry. This is my verse, this is my sad song, just another man going about life hoping he isn't doing it wrong.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
