I am a believer for many reasons
I am a believer with many questions.
As I type this, I age slowly
At a fast pace
Things and life are both passing me by
And I wonder why
I can’t stop this feeling of wondering if it all really matters
Does it or not?
I google an answer to comfort my spirit
To no avail
The lagging answer in the back of my head is
Nothing matters, get real
I wonder what happens after the moment in which I breathe my last breath
These conversations are uncomfortable and scary
And for the past few weeks, they have been burning inside my mind like Hell
Is Hell real? Is that a place? Or a made up story?
I have to know what lies beyond
I am so scared of the answer being nothing
What if this universe means nothing
What if we really know nothing
About all the things we have spent millions of years
Trying to know
What if one day no one will know who we are
Do I keep caring
In the search for knowledge
Or live a happy life
Like an idiot
