Our strange stay here on Earth

We did not ask for this

We cannot control what we must

We can only rise to the times

And do what we see as right

There is no one there to listen

No parent in the sky

We are the author of our souls

The believer in our faith

Children of the universe

Intellect and compassion?

Built solely from an interplay of atomic particles

Our strange stay here on Earth

The true miracle of chance and physics

Intellect and compassion? The question mark is telling. Thank you. Keith

ooh, almost missed this, glad I didn't. The last line sums it up nicely, for me anyway. Nice.
