A Poem about the Meaning of Life.


Life the Universe and Everything

People are always pondering,
life the universe and everything,
the answers in the word,
it's the only one I've heard.

Eternity, if you've got the right stuff,
as an answer, it's good enough,
nearly all will get there,
about the others, I don't care.

It's not an answer you may say,
but it'll do for today,
it's a very simple answer,
we're going to live forever!


About the Author

I was born in Melbourne Australia on March 4th, 1957. My mother worked in a pie van at Victoria market. My father drank. My brother, sister and I used to take time off school, go to the museum, botanical gardens or sneak into the zoo. When I was 9 we moved to a country town not far from the city. I enjoyed roaming around the paddocks. I didn't do well at school, my lack of concentration made studying difficult, I dropped out to pursue a career in retail. I managed an aquarium successfully. In 1985 I was diagnosed with schizophrenia, later with paranoid schizophrenia, with this came heavy cannabis use. I was in and out of hospitals for a long time. New medications have made me stable, I haven't been hospitalized since 2000. Psychosis radicalized my thinking, I realized I could make something out of the darkness. That was the beginning of my paranormal journey.
