Life is one long Mystery (A poem by Richard Mawby)
What is life?
Can you summarise the very essence of what it stands for?
Below is a short poem that I believe answers the above questions. It is a short piece of writing that has remained close to my heart, so much so that I have memorized it and can recite to anyone who wishes to hear this unique and touching piece. These words suddenly flowed from my thoughts and as each one appeared I wrote them down, therefore what you are about to read is pure inspiration from an origin of something greater, drawn from beyond our conscious minds.

Life is one long Mystery
Life is one long mystery
A mystery we'll never solve
To solve would find our ending
And so our ending would dissolve
Dissolve into the cycle
A cycle we call life
Where a beginning meets an ending
... And an ending is reborn;
