Why? (Poem)

Why do we fight? 
     When the world is one...
Why the borders? 
     When land belongs to no one...

Why do we cry? 
      For things we cannot have?
Living in misery, 
      Yet leaving it behind when we die...

Barriers we build, 
       Religion, race and caste...
Haven't we learnt anything? 
       From mistakes of our past?

Simple can be life, why do we complicate?
     So much love to give, then why contemplate?
Happiness is easy, just need to give it a try...
     Then why hold back? Why just sit and cry?

So many questions, no answers in sight...
      Loosen heart's strings, not hold on so tight...
Feel the pulse, the beats of your heart aloud...
      Be up and alive, not just lost in the crowd...
