The Meaning of Life
What is life?
I turned to look and found that life was – what?
A path on which I wandered, back and forth?
Where was life?
When would I begin to see the reason why?
Were my “doings” right or wrong? Or –
Were they right for me, but wrong for others?
Were others the reason for this life, or me?
In a bubble without light.
No blues or greens, shades of red
Just opaque nothing – fish-eye dead.
What are you? Who are you?
Can you make my life worthwhile –
So I may make a life of worth of others”
Life – I knew not, where, what,
Or who you were.
I searched and searched and searched –
Until one day, a stranger said to me,
“ ‘The Man of Life, once said,
‘I am the Way,
The Life.’ ”
I knew at last, at last I knew
That Jesus was the Life –
He laid down His life –
That I might lay down mine – for you!
