Life, death and all

that comes in between

can be analysed to try

and find out what it means.

No one story is ever the same

we are all individual participants

in life’s game.

Experts may differ on

whether our personalities

comes down to genes

or if we are already programmed

by a force who remains unseen.

They argue over whether

we were specifically generated

or was it the result of a cosmic collision

that mankind was created.

Generation after generation

search for the answer

to that question

with scholars throughout the ages

putting forward their own suggestions,

each one believing in

the validity of their solution

only for someone else

to dismiss their contribution.

The answers will be fought over

after we are long gone

but by then it will be too late for some

to realise they were wrong.
