What is life?
Is it like some sort of fixed pattern?
Like some types of decorative wallpaper-
lines, some spots, and then some crosses-
You're born, you live some, and then you die?
It that all that life is then?
Under such terms and in general,
the answer seems to be a very logical yes.
To the contrary though, some would contend its much more-
so much more.
Of course there's that pattern of you're born, you live, you die,
but is it really that simple?
Life has its twists and turns, ups and downs.
There are roadblocks and dead ends that may hinder one's path,
but the struggle to breakthrough and evade those barriers is an epic,
and that may be what life is about,
to overcome and persevere,
to get out of that fixed wallpaper pattern,
to make it unpredictable and a great variety,
to get the very most out of life.
