Gengis Capote

(October,27,1968 / Havana, Cuba)

What is the meaning of life?


What is the meaning of life?
Why must Life have a meaning?

It's wakening to a morning sun,
rising from the east,
birds perched on trees singing melodies,
translucent skies softening the sun rays,
green blades of grass caressing underfoot,
babies crying in their cribs,
wives morning kiss,
mothers delicious cooking.
Not enough? ? ?



O' if it needs a meaning
let it be one to remember,
one that will open the heaves
shinning peace and equality on all,
let it be a happy face on children's
playing safe on the streets of Earth,
Let it not be a meaning of suffering,
a plague nor disease.
make it easy for all to understand
as drinking water or dancing in the rain.

I really have no idea it's meaning
just glad I have this gift,
to see and feel,
cry and sleep,
love and know,
I once existed amidst millions of breaths.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
