If nothing else, believe in art.

Oh, yes, I’m going there, to that dreaded complex question.
I don’t think that there is a single, cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all meaning of life that goes for everyone.
It’s going to be different for each person.
Some people live life for other people, while some people will live for themselves.
Some people live glass-half-full, and others live glass-half-empty.
Some people just go on surviving, others will truly live.
So when people ask, “What is the meaning of life?”,
I don’t think that’s really what they mean, I think what they are really asking is,

What does life mean to me?

A complex abstract thought that came to me at one in the morning turned into this poem, enjoy.
