What is it?

No one knows

Is it the moment when you finally feel your successes pay off

Or when you fall with stress and grief?

Is it based on the glorious moment when you graduate school

Or the tortuous failure in that one class?

Is it that split second you realize you’re completely and utterly in love with him

Or when you realize you’re simply in love with love?

Is it the first time you hear your child cry

Or when they are teens and constantly proclaim their hatred for you?
Is it the first time you meet your puppy

Or the last time they take a breath?

How on Earth can you define life as one  word or in just one moment?
You can’t, you just have to live it.

This is for those who, like me, keep questioning life.
