Life Is Confusing Poem by Steven Pimentel

Life Is Confusing

Rating: 2.8

Life is wrong
why shall we die?

we should have a pick
earth or the sky..

their life
Or mines..

i live my life
till the time is clicking..

a sec pass
all i can ask
am i dying Or am I living?

So many questions raised in this poem, but you did present them quite innocently, as we do ask these from time to time. 'Life is Confusing' as title is direct but a resolution at the end could have given it more impact - like....'life is confusing...until we find a purpose for living.' Is that suggestion ok with you?

We are all born to die, sad but true. We all ask...why...what is death, why am I here? I don't know the answer but I'm here and I guess I'll have to cope with it now. Great little poem this asking that age old question.....another good one from you. Ruthy

I just read the answer to this one in Louis Rams writing. Can't remember the title but it's one of his new ones and many of his are really inspirational, thoe that's not the one I'm talking about.
