The Sought After Life (a poem of resolution)

On the wings of a butterfly we search for the true meaning of life...
On the wings of a butterfly we search for the true meaning of life...
Our lives full of such stress and fast decisions to make by each...
Our lives full of such stress and fast decisions to make by each...
God's creatures, at peace with the world...
God's creatures, at peace with the world...
Flowers come and go leaving us with a sense of replenished joy...
Flowers come and go leaving us with a sense of replenished joy...
All life, as has been down through the ages...
All life, as has been down through the ages...
Life changes, or does it?
Life changes, or does it?
as each day awaits us with new challenges to overcome...
as each day awaits us with new challenges to overcome...


The life we all seek, the powerful, the meek,

To some, happiness is to be so daunting,

The rich and famous, and a life not as full,

Their history, in its shadows, all haunting.


The meek, the mild, in their delight, to smile,

Their days full of love, those not flaunting,

The joys of life, so many bought by strife,

Yet, a worthy time fulfilled, not wanting.


Our best with a price, many, to sacrifice,

A cost and well worth each participation,

May face the worst, hearts almost to burst,

In every fear and with all trepidation.


Our goals at last to reach, the best we beseech,

Then to receive a fondest of commendations.

Makes us each stronger and in our resolve,

A mystery of life to solve, in our transformations.


At our birth, until our demise, an attempt to apprise,

May be as a mystery, great puzzle, or surprise,

With our attempts and all's hardest work,

Experience the normal, or a quirk, in no disguise.


When we've lost our way, then a time to pray,

Remember our youth, its values to surmise.

Our self esteem, mother's smile, her gleaming eyes,

Our upbringing, that she did so well, and so wise.
