A Life of Purpose.

Found something horrible than death,

the justification that it isn't enough to just live

and frequently breathe,

it isn't enough to just sleep and wake up daily,

neither is it enough to merely find means of survival.

I've come to the understanding that

life is not just about clothing and shelter,

fulfilment is not in living for oneself,

it's in living for all.


That which is horrible than death,

is like an entire world without water,

like the day without light

and the moon overshadowed by the clouds.

It is a life without contents

is like a salt that lost its taste,

like a light that is hidden from shining;

a life valueless and with no essence.

A life of no significance, value or purpose


Don't live it! 

it is a life horrible than death,

to live and leave the earth without touching a life,

to end up being a living dead with no sense of purpose,

to live emptily and die emptily.

For I've seen people who didn't live empty,

but emptied their contents in others before death

and I know of those who lived and died

with their contents in them

Life is to be lived and be a blessing unto others

I would rather live for a day and touch many lives than to live for a hundred years and not be remembered by anyone for anything significant.
