Life and suffering

What use is living;
If misery is all we know?
In the midst of plenty,
We cannot afford to perish in hunger;
Suffering is not the wage,
Life is meant to pay
When our best we’ve put in;
Life is meant to be enjoyed;
and not for living in misery;
Although we must struggle;
Our struggles, with success,
Should be crowned;
If suffering is the only
Thing we know,
Something is wrong somewhere;
And life is not worth the price.
