MEANING
(8/31/16)

I know
you do

you want
to know

you need
to know

we all
need
to know

why
we are
here

what
we are doing
here

just
the simple miracle
of being
is not enough
for most
of us

we foolishly
hope for a reason
to be injected
into our lives
by a society
that doesn't seem
to recognize
rank and file
individuals

we are either
born
with a purpose

or we eventually
find
our own

none
is given

I surely
have none
to give you

but right
now

this butterfly
catches the sunlight
beautifully
before me
