Maybe From The Beginning I Am Like A Child - Poem by Gert Strydom

Maybe from the beginning
I am like a child
that does not want
things to come to an end.

At times I stand alone
against life
orphaned from my dad, my grandma
even my animals

the ability to understand
the reason of why mortality exists,
as if people and animals
by their own choice walk out of your life

and I struggle with the reasons
of human existence.
