The Meanings of Life

The grey clouds weigh on me
from the sky and gloom over
the Bay Area

A cloudy day bends thoughts
and twists viewpoints
into the cynical

I need to be reinforced
life is beautiful and meaningful
as long as I endow meanings to it

Be it a good cause
an intellectual achievement
an indestructible love…

So long as I strive for it
Chase it
Live with it

More than one time I thought
I had caught it in my palm
but then it slipped away by the tail

and disappeared into the fog…
and the journey goes on
just like that

Until I seize the moment
and see life in its
full spectrum of colors

What a wonderful world!

Happy Lunar New Year to those who celebrate! 🙂
