In Philosophy we learn to think what life means. I to have found a need to understand life. I hope this poem will be good food for thought...

Life
By Theresa Rose

Life it is full
But,
It is empty.
For us life is found by looking out
And yet,
It looks in.

It is a sphere,
A ball of crackly, spinning, tainted glass.
And from within
Something shimmers.
It's an hourglass,
And it is perpetual within its orb.

It is linear.
It is like the grains of sand.
Each single grain must fall.
For, after being spent
It must fall
Down
Down into the anticipative depths below.

It is timeless,
Like the darkness of space
It embraces the innumerous stars.
And we like a single star, set in the middle a full, shimmering, sky
It embraces the glimmer.

It spends us.
It is spinning us
And yet,
It holds us still
Motionless.
