The Mystery

Mystery, mystery, the world is a mystery
I want to see, but I don't see
I want to understand, but I don't understand.

Maybe it's because the future is not yet determined
Maybe because God, though omniscient and omnipotent
Has mandated an open ended future.

Maybe our actions matter
Maybe a closed-ended
Fully determined future would be boring for us.

But we will never know
Because we die
Even if we believe in life after death
None of us really knows what it will (would) be like.

Is the future really there if there's no one there to know it

Maybe the key is for us to try to live
So as to make a mark, a positive difference to the future.

I choose to believe it (life) matters.
