What Life Is About - Poem by Mary Jesusa Villegas

I have sailed the oceans

I have walked a thousand miles

I have stepped into the doubt

I still don't know

what Life is about.



I have searched for people

who might have an answer

to my many questions

But they gave me so many

Yet they gave me so little



One day I cried and the tears I wished

would flood my indespicable mind

So I would just drown, vanish



But one day I woke up

And just fell into the silence

and then I laughed and talked with my friends

And then I happily bid my mom goodbye

as I walked out the door

In school, the whole day I'd spend

At night my twin sister would talk about

how her day would end

I had a glimpse of

What Life is about

since then.
