The Sphinx' Riddle

I am the Sphinx.
I have only one riddle for you.
And if you cannot answer,
It will kill you from within.
You should know the answer
As it concerns your own being.
My question is merely this:
Why is it you are alive?
If you don't know why you live,
Then why should you live at all?
With nothing to make either better,
How are life and death not equals?
You can already feel my poison
Beginning to take its effect.
Be quick if you want to save yourself;
The answer is the only antidote.
