Oh! purpose of life what!

there is absolutely no purpose to life
BUT
we have to make our lives purposeful
in order to fill up the vast void
between birth and death

some die very young and priests say
god loved then so took them away

some suffer all lifelong and wish to die
the priesty guy now says
god is punishing them that's why
they don't die

some have skipped the death queue
and crossed to over 100
then priests say god wanted them to stay
so that for the sake of ailing humanity
they longer do pray

but
I only say
‘’’live today
as tomorrow you will die anyway
extend or stretch that tomorrow
by medical help
you may

A good point you have made here, but what has God got to do with it.
There may be an overseer some place that will Smite you when the time for you to go arrives, then again you may just go as your time is up.
You can't blame a God for any of this, I think that someone invented a God to put the fear of not doing right into our ways, well it doesn't wash with me, then some blame their God for all the bad they do and ask him/her to forgive them and expect it to happen I give up.
It's about time we realised that it is us /we are responsible for all that we do, now go off and say three hail Mary's and just the one Our Father and we can start with a clean slate tomorrow lol.
I hope I haven't upset your ways with this, as then it would touch my Spirit being, and make it a little heavier, may your God go with you on your Sojourns and make your way clear, Yours Ian.T

I have made the mistake often enough myself.

I've done my best to make amends,

I go to find the peace of my cave.
There is no sound in my cave or any deity, that's how I can rest..
You will be able to find me there, Yours Ian.T, not a deity
Loved come and have a cup of tea and a sticky bun lol, we will talk of many things some the Walrus has mentioned lol
