The Meaning of Life

The Meaning of Life

We stubble through life like drunken dancers
To decipher the questions that have no answers

Like is there a God and why are we here
Is it for laughter, love, will it ever be clear

Is it searching the world for the greatest thrill
Or cheating your neighbor for every dollar bill

Or perhaps its deeper, something more profound
Like the buzz of bee as it flies around

It could be the rain, how it feels when it falls
Or the sound of an echo, as it hits the walls

It might be the sight of a lover sleeping
Or the humbling sound of a widow weeping

Is it about right, or is it about wrong
What about power and to whom it belongs

We search high and low, near and far
For where we're going, versus where we are

So the meaning of life, does it really matter
What's important and what's mindless chatter

It is all these things and how they fit together
From the tsetse fly, to your best friend forever

Everything in life, comes and goes
It is about the quiet things that no one ever knows
