We all live life,

in our preferred ways.

We share the same river of time,

during nights and our days.

We have become infinitely busy,

with each little task.

On the meaning of life,

we don’t ponder nor ask.

Maybe that’s because,

the answers are clear.

Subconsciously informed,

to seek happiness and cheer.

There’s no destination,

to wait or arrive.

Moments filled journey,

we should constantly strive.

Since happiness begins,

with each unique mind.

Fueled by love,

and to always be kind.

The meaning of life,

is to mutually savor.

Our hearts shall appreciate,

the bliss and the flavor.

To me the meaning of life is very simple. It involves sharing experiences with family and friends, and simply enjoying life.

I don’t think there’s a secret formula or anything like that. As individuals, we just need to make an effort to live life with a positive attitude and smile on our faces. Simple things like that, will enable us to live happier and richer lives.

We need to accept our struggles, fears, and pain as ingredients that will always be there. However, we shouldn’t make them our focus, because in doing so we’d be wasting our days. Our limited number of days.

I also believe that we need to understand that we share life and this earth we inhabit, together. Therefore we need to love our fellow human beings, if we wish to be loved back.

Every person on this planet is passionate about something and is good at doing something very well. That’s why I strongly believe that each person must follow his/her passions in life. By doing so, the world will become a better place. Everyone needs to play their role, no matter how small it may seem. We are a world community that will prosper and be happy when we all collaborate and provide our individual passionate efforts into the pool.

The goal is to enjoy both our individual and mutual journey. That’s the meaning of life, in my view.

I hope you enjoyed reading my meaning of life poem.
