What Is The Meaning Of Life
Author: Barbara Goodhew


A question we ask but have no answer.
So we are born,and do what is expected.

We make our own life.
We learn to make the best of life.

Doing what we hate or doing what we love.

Being grateful or being bitter. Enjoying
little things, or having to have all the glitter.

Making others life happy.
Making others life stressful.
To me making others life easier is

The Meaning of Life

Your poems are so philosophical, Barb -- and life is very often what you make it.

The Purpose Driven Life

That's a real good book, by Rick Warren! Life is not only the meaning of breathing, but what we also make of it! I love your rhetorical question-like poem, "What is the meaning of Life"!
