So many people contemplate life over and over
Philosophers have spent years looking for the answer
The chicken or the egg? They ask
People treat the meaning of life like a task
How many people live in the moment?
When so many before them didn’t
Is the meaning of life to get to Heaven?
To be a beacon for the suffering, sad, or beaten?
Will we ever know if people don’t live life to their accord?
Maybe the meaning of life differs from the ignored and the adored
But one thing is for sure
Life means to endure, learn, and mature

I really like this one. A lot of times people over-analyze "the meaning of Life" and this poem just puts it straight forward. Nice Job!
