Life Has No Meaning


Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning
and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be
asking the question when you are the answer.

  1. My daughter once gave me a key fob that said, “Chocolate is the answer…what’s the question?” Very funny…but what you have written could be fit into such a statement…change it…”I am the answer…” and it becomes a different truth…if you know you have life because you are then answer, the surprising result is, or has been for me, at least…peace, fulfillment, and contentment…I liked this very much indeed.

  2. Interesting quote, lots to think about… I see meaning in birds, trees, nature basically, so perhaps he is speaking about perception?

    • You see meaning in all these things because you understand them so well. You bring them to life with your poetry.
      Needless to say they would still exist without you, but now their existence has greater meaning.

  3. Yes, Eddie, you have found a great summary of what you do so well – to bring meaning to living. Thanks for sharing these words and your thoughts.
