A great question for a 9th grader; a sad question for an old retired professor. What you are asked to do here is to bring to expression all those vague, foggy, half-formed ideas that you have gathered from your education and from you personal experiences so far. Is Humanity going somewhere, or just surviving? Are we on the right track, and what is the right track? Will we ever get past war as a viable action? Is anyone monitoring our progress? Is our reasoning ability getting in the way of our happiness or helping it along. Are we just self-conscious animals, or do we have a "spirit"? My vision of the world is that I'm on my way out, and you can have my place. Good luck with that.
