The Meaning Of Life, Where's And Why's- Subjects You Think About At 3 AM

Emee.chan is still searching for that one perfect word for herself. She isn't sure that only one word is enough to describe us entirely.

At night I sit and ponder if I'm going in the right direction, do I know what I'm doing, did I lose sight of my goal or is there something more out there...

An Expanded Summary Of Sorts, Since 300 Characters Isn't Enough Apparently

Okay, about that line "Maybe you're still searching for the right word for yourself." Is there such thing as a one word, or a RIGHT one at that? What would even that word be? A noun, an adjective? Will it be associated with just you or will other people with similar personality traits be included in its definition? So many questions...We struggle with a lot more words on a daily basis, imagine what chaos finding that one right word for ourselves will bring! But who knows, maybe if we're creative enough, we could invent one. There's "yeet", "dweeb", why can't we come up with a few more, describing ourselves entirely?

Our whole lives are spent searching for something. We often feel as though what we search for is out of reach, yet we're being pushed forward, encouraged to continue our journey. So don't stop searching for new things about yourself.

Meaning, Reasons And Answers

We're all searching for a meaning.
Meaning of life, of a word.
Meaning hiding behind something divine.

We're all looking for a reason.
Reason for do or don't.
For a reason why or why not.

We're all searching for answers.
Answers that would make or break us.
Answers that matter to us.

We're searching and searching.
Feeling as though we're reaching,
But not touching the unknown.

In the end, we're searching for ourselves.
For the meaning of our lives,
For the reason of our existence.
For the answer to our purpose.

We look up words to better
Describe ourselves.
To give us the definition
Of our most inner self.

We need meaning of those few letters,
To see if it matches with who we are,
If we don't find it satisfactory, we need
To replace it with another one.

When we do find that perfect word,
When the meaning of it is clear,
We work out the answer to the
Mystery of our existing right here.

"Do I know where I'm going
Or what I'm doing,
Is it right or wrong,
Is this where I'm supposed to be?"

These are the questions that often
Play on repeat in our mind,
Making us ponder where
And what we are.

One day we will find ourselves
A place we're meant to belong in,
No question asked.
Our doubts a thing of the past.


A/N
