Philosophising About The Meaning Of Life
Author: Karla Bardanza


The acceptance of finitude
Is the acceptance of life.
Yes, Heidegger i accept
My death, my human
I also accept my afflictions,
Intuitions and everything else.
But i canít accept that existence
Is senseless and useless.
Nothingness...What is the meaning
Of life after all?
Alienation? Yearning for unity?
Or just absurd, Camus?
What is our quest?
Is life a mission, a test? Or is Hegel
Correct when he says alienation
Is a process which leads human
To discover their true
Essence? Did we really lose our
Original unity? What are we looking
For? What do we ask for more?
Are we just slaves to work and its
Products and little by little we lose
Our identity and our essence? Is Marx
So many questions make my soul restless
Through the night...
And all the answers are deep inside of
Me...i guess this woman here will never
Feel free...
