Why Am I Born? - Poem by David Darbyshire

So this is the Planet Earth
A strange place to have a Birth
Who says that I am to be Born Here?
I really did not Volunteer?

But at the end of the Day
We are all here to Stay
Why is that So?
Does anyone Know?

I think I know the reason Why
I dare you all to Deny or Defy
And this is not a Quiz
I really believe the reason Is
That we have to Learn!
Or you and I will Return...........
