Poems About Life
I wrote things about you because you gave me a little bit of love, or at least what I thought was love, and I wanted so much more. I wrote things about you because I wanted you to be different, I wanted you to give me the love that I gave you, I wanted you to stay…. And you feel foolish, because you gave your all and he gave you nothing. And so I still write things about you, not because I still love you, but because I remember what it felt like to have someone drown you, scratching at the air just to catch a breath without even laying a finger on you. I remember what it felt like to see the light in your eyes, what it felt like to hear all those never ending promises, what it felt like to be loved.
What is life? People have been asking themselves this fundamental question since the time immemorial. Believe it or not, each person tends to understand and accept this or that phenomena in their own way. Life is no exception. You can express the way you see and feel this world and life in it through various forms of art.
These poems about life include many views and values that we share in life. Personally, I think it's important for each person to love life and also be grateful at the same time. This type of attitude will allow us to live full and meaningful lives, that are filled with joy and happiness.

The Dream Of Life - Alan Watts
Tell me not, in mournful numbers, Life is but an empty dream! For the soul is dead that slumbers, And things are not what they seem. Life is real! Life is earnest! And the grave is not its goal; Dust thou art, to dust returnest, Was not spoken of the soul. Not enjoyment, and not sorrow, Is our destined end or way; But to act, that each to-morrow Find us farther than to-day. Art is long, and Time is fleeting, And our hearts, though stout and brave, Still, like muffled drums, are beating Funeral marches to the grave.
