What is Life


What is life?
Who knows the true definition?
Is life everything that you want you gets?
If life a bowl of gravy and a bucket of biscuits?
Is life just one good time?
What is life?
Life is not knowing exactly what it is you want
Life is wanting to take it away but you can't because you cherish it too much
Life is being confused
Life is at times being angry and wanting to cry
Life is crying for no reason and wondering why
Life is finding love only to have it taken away
Life is allowing your heart to go astray only for it to be broken within a single day
What is life to me?
right now I can't tell
my life is sporadic
up today and down tomorrow
sometimes there's smiles, sometimes there's sorrow
my life is thinking you've got it only to find out that it was never there
my life is stressful for reasons that don't need to be
these reasons I still cannot see
What is life?
Can you tell me?

    life is, but a hurdle race.
    you have to bear the burdens
    to surpass the hurdles
    if ya want to win the race

    i thought of life like this.
    but yeah your way of seeing life is a bit interesting too.
    you know every one got a different view.
    that's why we still ponder what actually is life
    good work (Report) Reply

O Love! thou makest all things even

That out of dust created man,
