‘I’m taking life easy,’ I said
‘What is life?’ he asked
A question that nagged at my brain
Causing it to hurt from the strain.

Life is living.
Life is joy.
Life is pain.
Life is gain.
Life is mistakes.
Life is discovery.
Life is high stakes.
Life is recovery.

Life is dread
But at least we’re not dead.
Life gives us a chance
To move ahead.

Life is a rollercoaster
It tosses us up and down
And spins us around and around
Before it takes us down.
Down to the ground
Where our ancestors roam
Down to the ground
Where we cease to moan.
Life is.
