What is Life Anyway?

What is life anyway? Have I the right to live When someone else just died A bloody death in some war torn land Or of starvation in some barren land Or of abortion In a clinic in New York. Have I the desire to live In a world so violent as this, When there's nothing I can do To stop the pain of war Or of starvation? Who mourns when the innocent die And the guilty live on? Who mourns when a child dies, And a criminal is set free? Who mourns the injustice of the world? What is life anyway. That to live for some is to die, That to be unwanted is not a crime, That to be unloved is so prevailent? Do I have the right to be granted a life That I don't always want When so many have been denied life With absolutely no choice? What is life anyway?
