What is your meaning in life?

When I was twenty
My mother said to me
“It’s time you step out of your hive
And find your meaning in life.”

I took a walk to the park
And witnessed a passionate hug
Union of man and woman
Was that the answer to the question?

Dressed in coat and tie
A businessman brisked by
Grinning like a little boy
Could wealth and success bring such joy?

Seated by a clover tree
Was a girl with a book and a cup of coffee
Was pursuit of knowledge
One’s motivation even till old age?

To home I returned
With no conclusion
My overzealous mother stood at the door
I realized that family is what I live for
