Do We Live for the Proper Reason?

“So choose your last words, this is the last timeCause you and I, we were born to die.” ~Lana Del Rey

Do We Live for the Proper Reason?

Born to live does not seem correct to me.
Being born to live seems like a poor way to live. 
Born to suffer, born to work, born to find love sounds like a better option to me.

We go through life wanting to live.
We want the materials to keep us filled.
Happiness is not connected to this life.
It is connected to the eternal death.

Born to love.
Born to die.
Being born to live does not sound good to me.

A child is alive and they live to die. 
A child shows us what joy is all about.
A child’s light is brighter than any cynic we call an adult.
A child knows no bounds and dives in with trust and love.

This life is not our life.
This world is not our home.
Our home is on the other side, so live to die.

Children laugh and children cry.
Children are gifts that show us how we once were.
Dedicate your children with truth.
Dedicate your children, so they may grow and tell the truth as they live for the other side.
I believe in love.
I believe in birth and resurrection. 
I believe in lost causes being shown the way through children’s eyes.

We are all born, we all will die.
We do not all live. 
We go through life sitting down and not running forward. 
Get up be a child and lose your life in truth, in love, in a child’s eye.
We need to live to learn to die. 
But traditional living will not do.
My living will be one that is focused on my death. 
Focused on love, on lost souls, on living by doubting doubts.
Pray and be still.
Pray for your soul.
And look at life with child’s eyes.

Go out to battle and die in the proper fashion. 
With hope in your eyes and love in your heart.
Doubt your doubts and live with the other side in mind.
