Meaning of Life Poems

Incidentally, as a survivor of Nazi Concentration Camps he was in a position to know. Thankfully, most of us are not tested in such extreme conditions. However, the principle is the same. Human beings cannot live without meaning. Depression is the natural outcome of living a life that is bereft of purpose.

Poem Encouraging Others To Make The Most Of Each Day
Remember Me

If I were to leave this world today, I'd want to be remembered, it's true,
for going that extra mile just to show my love for you.

the pacing of the parasite begins to swell
it suffers in silence yet demands to be heard
it will never survive without its bevy of words...
