A short rhyming poem about the meaning of life

What is the Meaning of Life

by AliMom

Since we have not made ourselves, the possibility is high
That we haven't got a clue why we were born or live or die
So the answer to our meaning is in how we live each day
How we interact with others who we pass along the way

What is meaningful to one man may be ashes to another
Never trying to understand the meaning of a different brother
Fighting, loving, living, dying because we fear it might be true
That the true meaning of life is The Hitchhiker's number forty-two

And quite frankly that's a dismal and disappointing point of view
Just a crowd reduced to numbers in a universal stew
Floating past each other bumping 'round and wondering what to do
While we contemplate our meaning in this energetic and organic zoo

Meaning of Life writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
Write a rhyming poem of 12 lines or less that explains the meaning of life.

The meaning of life is to give meaning to life. Sometimes we can't see the forest for the trees and we miss life's meaningful moments or the moments that give meaning to life.
