I don't know why I am here
But I am. At least as far as I can tell
I am here today.
This moment, the Universe, the All That Is, the Unnamable
Appears to have given rise -- to me!
And in this moment it seems I have talents, thoughts, ideas and dreams
Let me explore the illusory aspects of this thing I call me, and share them
With all the others who, like me, may not be here tomorrow
Yet appear to share my path today
I may not have a purpose, there may be no raison d'Ítre
But still, I am. I'm here right now.
I suppose that means I'm not done yet.
