What is Life?

by rockinm76233

Is life really like an hour glass
With the sands of time flowing freely to the bottom?
Or Is it just, counting the hours away
While we wait?

Is life like a kite
Forever flying free in the wind?
While fluffy clouds join in the dance
And let their softness life enhance.

Is life like a tree
That has branches everywhere?
Are the branches flapping in the wind
while knowing its safe with roots so deep.

Is life like a weed
Growing un-inhibited everywhere?
Is there a goal in site
As our search continues to find what's right?

Is life like a gift
All wrapped up in pretty paper?
Is it waiting to be set free?
I guess that's up to you and me.
