           The meaning of life

I truly wonder, whats the meaning of life
Is it being the best, knowing you canít be beaten?
Or is it something way deep inside
When you say the meaning of life, what do you mean?


Are you talking about working hard, succeeding?
Or having a really hard math problem, you spend time on, that you finally get
How about hoping, having faith and dreaming?
You stop and talk to someone you donít normally see, talking about life, home, and debt

Maybe, a loved one after a long struggle beats out a disease
Or you realize the hidden treasures that once you couldnít find among your home
Your family, who you love, all so out of it, couldnít be at peace
Watching your high school graduate leave, they turn, and you donít feel so alone


Somebody says something mean to you, all nasty and cruel
A friend, tells them to be quiet, when asked they answer,Ē sheís my friend.
You find a new hobby something that is completely new
Well, I donít know, maybe that when it comes down to it, In the end,

Itís grouping together all the small joys, tiny little deeds
Making new friends, bringing together moments of the heart
Giving the bad a place in your mind, knowing what they mean
Its finding truth amidst lies, reliving times, a brand new start

The meaning of life I think, is taking the little things and always knowing
The value of the loved ones that surround you, bathe you in their light
Its uniting the tiny joys in life, and having the pile always growing
Itís finding each new puzzle pieces that go to your life

Maybe, that the meaning is not such a really big deal
Itís the little things, and  faults that make us real

I hate it when a poem slowly moves down to the end of the list without any comments. Especially one I enjoyed reading as much as this one. Good Job Rhia!!

Much Love,
Michelle
