Watching the cursor blink
It Waits; expecting the letters
To form words and sentences
Granting it purpose
 
The world is full of noise
Distractions
Makes it hard to think,
as the cursor blinks away
 
What is a manís purpose in life
To leave our mark on this Place?
Unspeakable evil or benevolent grace
Infamous is still famous
 
7 billion going on 8
The friends we make
Destiny or fate
Just Fish in a lake
 
Mate and propagate
This is our true purpose
Legacy continues,
Striving for Utopia
 
But this dystopia is cruel
Waiting for a world
That will never be,  
Crumbles before our very eyes
 
The difference between you and I
The grass and the stars
Simply the way atoms interact,
Becoming molecules
 
Whatís our purpose again?
