invention to dawns

if the meaning of life is to help others
eventually you’re going to run out of others to help
that’s logic
also there is a sneaky clause to it
that involves creating the lost
so that you can find them
that involves supporting disparity
so that unfortunates exist
if the meaning of life is to help yourself
that’s a very lonely universe
if the meaning of life is to stay healthy
you get old
and run into degeneration
where that meaning dissolves as quickly
as the joints in your knees
if the meaning of life is knowledge
will finally receive the knowledge
that everything is made up
a house of cards
that may or may not have supper glue on the ready
if the meaning of life is to love
life is about discovering the unlovable
if the meaning of life is to hate
then misery binds the inconclusive
if the meaning of life is a journey
there is no hope for stasis

what is the meaning of life?
when I’m weary
walking to the store
i will pause and look up
the sky a beauty that has no words
only blankets my heart
with a desire for another breath
for another step….

it seems to tell me that my soul
is everything and nothing
for if life is a puzzle
one piece will always be missing
time
and pass the time again
tranquility
acceptance?

if the meaning of life
is discovery
then each part of a laughable existence
can take the good with the bad
it isn’t difficult to want more
and find a smile
for what never makes sense
