Life's Meaning - Poem by Celeste Morse

Words spoken -
Without meaning nor passion;
Tears shed -
Without thought of true saddness;
Rage enflamed -
Yet no thought to succumb the flames;
Thoughts withheld -
Yet no actions reinforce;
Do tell -
Why do we let the world slip
Between our fingertips,
Without so much as a glance?
Why do we live each day
Anticipating tomorrow,
Without thought of today?
Why do we live
Expecting pleasures to come alone,
Yet are not willing
To ean them honestly?
Do tell -
Why do we expect the world
To give all answers,
Yet do not so much
As consider the question?
Why do we live
In regret of yesterday,
Yet do not yearn
For tomorrow's future?
Do tell -
Shall we ever embrace
Each tear,
Every word,
Each day,
And every thought -
And ever consider their meaning?
Do tell -
Shall we ever live life
With full meaning?
