I guess this is where you put poems too. Forgive me if this is the wrong place.

I spent many years in my youthful days pondering the mysteries of life. In my adult years things have become somewhat clearer. At least I have had time to formulate my ideology about some of those questions.

Is life complicated because we make it so?
Is it more simple when we look closer?

Do we have a balance to achieve?
Is there really a god to believe?

Right or wrong?
Pluses or minuses?
Does karma play a role in the evolution of our soul?

Is there a soul?
Is there an afterlife?
Do we get more than one chance?

I hope there is a higher power,
I communicate with something,
or am I delusional in thinking this?

Positive or negative,
an energy surely exists,
I feel it coursing through my veins,
or am I delusional about this, too?

I truly want to believe that what I think is not delusional.

I do not know without a reasonable doubt,
does it matter if I shout it out?

Is having faith in what we don't see delusional?

Is everything we think we see an illusion?

The stars above us seem to twinkle,
the Earth seems to rotate,
the Moon seems to shine and go through phases,
these are illusions to us?

What I choose to believe may not be what you perceive,
do they deceive us when they teach us?

Time comes and goes, but is it real or just our imagination?
I wear a watch or I watch a clock, the seconds tick away,
every day the ritual is the same, days change?

Isn't every day the same with a different name?
Monday through Sunday the time ticks the same way.
Who knows what is the real time?
Does it even matter?

Life could be but a minute in the Universe.
Do we have time to waste?

Is love the answer to it all?
Does love even exist?
I think it is real, but am I delusional?

My conclusion is possible delusion,
we are who we are,
no matter what time it is.

What You see,
is What You get.
On that I,
am willing to bet.

However I also think,
there is more out there,
and We are on the brink,
of discovering the answers,
to lifes questions asked,
by science and philosophers
burdoned with that task.

Live Your life to,
the fullest every day.
Let noone deter You,
or stand in Your way!

BTW, Hello and Welcome to ATS! Enjoy the ride!!

Thanks for the welcome, are you a GOT fan? I am. I resisted, until I watched the first one, then I binged watched every episode in 2 days. Now, I am hooked and can't wait to see how it all plays out.

The only reason I asked was because you have this dragon thing going and wondered if that was why? So what came first the chicken or the egg?

Oh I have had Dragons on My mind since forever! GOT has helped a renewal in My fascination with them, but was not the catalyst for Me liking them...
Umm for Your Q. I have no idea which came first, but I do like cooked eggs!! And Roasted Chicken!!LOL!
