I’ve seen the world with these two eyes.
A movie played inside my mind.
I’ve traveled the seas in half the time
Without ever leaving home.

I’ve spread my wings but didn’t fly
I’ve touched heaven, but I didn’t die
Had the chance to ask God why
Without ever receiving an answer.

I’ve count the stars and made to ten
Lost track and had to start again.
People laughed, but that’s how we make friends
Without ever knowing their name.

I’ve loved completely and watched them leave
I tell the story—some don’t believe
Let them go or did you flee?
Without seeing what tomorrow brings.

I’ve cried like I would never smile
Walked in darkness for half a mile
Saw the sun in the distance for a small while
Without ever feeling its rays.

I’ve walked the beaches—tasted the breeze
There was a time that I’ve felt free.
Touched my soul and let life be
Without any regrets to hold.

I’ve laughed until I could not breathe
Gasped for air and let people see
There’s so much more inside of me
Without speaking a word.

I’ve held the wonders of the earth
Experienced the beauty since my birth.
Moments made filled with mirth
Without spending a dime.

I’ve faced my fears with a stern face
Let them know that they knew their place.
Life is mine to feel safe
Without worrying what’s beyond the corner.

I’ve seen it all, yet know there’s more
Some steps I’ve relived before.
But I’ll keep walking across the floor
Without knowing where each step falls.

I know the dangers. I know the cost
But I know my life is never lost.
So I’ll keep living with my unknown cause
Without asking for anything in return.

I’ll gain some friends—some memories, too
To myself, I vow to be true.
And I’ll push myself to make it through
Without giving myself the chance to fail.

This is life—it’s what you make it
Take it now, but please don’t break it.
Life does not come with a life time guarantee
It’s yours to take without knowing what it will be.
Yup. This is me being philosophical, guys. haha Yeah I really had no idea what to put this as...but it is sort of...think-worthy. Yunno since people are always questioning the meaning of life and all...

I sorta like this poem myself. No idea why, though...

Amazing dude, really connect with it. Your completely right, you don't always have to know all the answers, a simple fact many of us forget, to find meaning and make something of life.

It now seems like every poem I find on here is yet another piece of literary gold.

Poetry truly is the most beautiful form of literature. And this is far from an exception.
I have a similar poem, "What is Life" [link]
