Why Am I Alive?

Why am I alive?
Why are parents annoying?
Why is there a number five?
Why do we have to die?

Why is the sea blue?
Why do we say words so mean?
Why do we have questions like why and who?
Why do we have enemies?

Why are there all sorts of people?
Why do people wear glasses?
Why are there churches or steeples?
Why do I have to go to bed?

Why are there different toys?
Why do rubbers work?
Why are there only girls and boys?
Why are there scary creatures?

Why am I alive?

Taken from my 'Literacy Notebook' from Year 5 or 6, so aged 8-10. The start of my interest in Philosophy. ;)

The End
