    What is life

    If you are ever asked,
    "What is life"
    Well life is a joke !,
    It's right up there with,
    "What are you going to be when you grow up",
    Another cruel saying to say the least,
    Because you never live long enough to grow up,
    And that is the cruelest joke of all......

    damn. never reaching our full potential is a cruel joke, but i also think its a safety mechanism. look at what we are doing with the knowledge we have gained already. another great job firebird. your eyes are wide open i see
