The Answer to Life~8

The Answer to Life


Each thought in my mind I put to the test

Looking for answers that may fit the best
Explaining the knowledge I still may not know

Like when we each die where all of us go


Some say heaven with streets of gold

Some say hell if your soul has been sold

Some say this is it when we reach the end

As for me I believe in the first 2 my friend


Lifeís what we make it so know thatís true

The direction of each day depends on you

So some will go bad and some will be great

Are you following this and can you relate


When things go wrong some come unglued

And then they canít hide their poor attitude

But things donít go better by losing your temper

Or by people hearing you constantly whimper


So I wrote this piece as a kind of reminder

To treat yourself and others a lot more kinder

Because believe it or not we must understand
Itís the answer to life still unsolved by man

Author's Notes:
Life is a mystery and is intended to be
We exist intertwining with our destiny
So finding the answers that matter to us
Is our challange before we're returned to dust
This is one I decided to repost
Report Offensive Poem.

I haven't been around for a while,
and I'm so glad I picked this piece to read today.
Exactly what I need to hear, and as always put perfectly.
Take care xx

so this is a thinker... You have to be positive. Positive energy attracts Positive energy. You always carry such wisdom in your poems. You teach us all to THINK! life can be so hard. But it is up to us to change what we do not like. It is up to us to be Positive. You always inspire me!

Wonderful sentiments James. Len is right...we search and search but who of us can say we know it all?



....I especially loved these lines:

When things go wrong some come unglued

And then they canít hide their poor attitude

But things donít go better by losing your temper

Or by people hearing you constantly whimper


Hugs my friend

This touches on the same subject as your recent comment on my piece, James. The mystery of life is what makes it nothing less than a magical adventure. We are smart enough to ask the questions, but completely incapable of understanding the answers...len

Thank you for reposting this very wise poem. Life sure is a mystery and a puzzle for each of us to figure out. Every one's journey is unique and their own.

We humans will always question and the different answers that satisfy will reflect upbringing, lifestyles, social status or religious beliefs of different people. Nothing is true...but believing it makes it so. Life is what we make it...I like that this poem ends on a positive note. =))

"Life is a mystery and is intended to be".  I believe that wholeheartedly. Whether it's religion, space or a whole slew of other unknowns, I think there will always be things Man questions without finding the answer.

Nice write

So glad you reposted this astonishing poem.. life is a gamble and you do have to know how to play the game or you lose over and over... Your words are words of a man who has lived them I respect you for that and you pour out your thoughts so others  will ponder your words that speak plain and simple with great emotions...We must save the very of life to the last...
