questions from a lost soul

By knifelikepens

Since I am insignificant and unremarkable do I deserve life?

Am I a placeholder for someone who will be better than I?

Is my name a smear in the place we call the world?

Am I even important enough to be a smear?

Am I someone that people would even miss in life?

Do I know know who is puppet-master?

Am I a something that deserves to be a puppet?

Do I deserve to be nihilistic and melancholic?

Do I deserve to hold a place in people's hearts?

Do I even deserve to die?

Since I am insignificant and unremarkable must I suffer a horrible life?
