What Is Life?

What Is Life?

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay

What is life? 
Its everything in us 
And everything which 
Surrounds us 

What is life? 
Its finding pleasure 
And spreading love 
Among fellow humans 

What is life? 
Listen to the birds sing 
And fly about finding freedom 
And you'll know 

What is life? 
Though unhappy inside 
Yet happy on the face 
That is what it is

What is life? Perhaps a better question is, what can life be?

Most welcome my friend
It is everything and all, in this dimension. Who knows what it will be on our next journey, or those we made before. For now, it is contemplating the thought you just gave us. Thank you for the gift :)

Yes indeed, for life is what we make of it. Thank you for the review ☺
The short verses and the repetition of 'What is life?' create a neat and effective structure to support the central idea. The observations on life are not especially profound, but sometimes it's good to be reminded of the obvious. Do birds fly about finding freedom? I thought they were either looking for mates or food. Now that is certainly life! It guess there IS a profound truth in the last verse, the idea that much of life is about putting a brave face on the things, making the best of whatever comes your way, not letting disappointment, grief and despair overcome you. The trouble is, you can make life out to be almost anything. Even going to the dentist is life :-)

It made me think, anyway.

I thought this poem was sweet. It encompasses what many people go through in life, the "why" of reality.
