To Find Joy - Poem by Abdullah Ramadan

How do we live in this world of pain
How do we smile at this misery
How can we possibly still stay sane
How can we possibly be

The answer to this lies at the end
There you will see the conundrum's key
There you will find what you cannot mend
There answers how we can be

The name of this mighty key is death
The thought that lays always in our mind
The reason some of us will take meth
The reason we will be kind

Because we know we are going die
We create joy in this world of pain
We will all climb mountains oh so high
We will smile at the rain

Because we know we are going to die
We will create light where there is none
We will find might even in our sky
We will look ahead and run

Because we know we are going to die
We do all that we wanted to do
So that when our time comes we will die
Die, so we will never rue

Topic(s) of this poem: death, pain
