My answer as to why on Earth we’re here
Is so in time we may enlarge our sphere
Of consciousness, at last to comprehend
The Cosmic Source from which we all descend.
It’s not as if we must forever roam
With never any hope of coming home,
Oblivious and wayward in our course,
Estranged and desolate in our divorce,
A time will come when we shall find the Way
To comprehend commands we must obey
To regulate our hapless reckoning
And end our existential suffering.
When we’ve attained such cosmic consciousness,
We’ll know at last the meaning of success.
