What is life?
I don’t know.
Life is just…life.
It starts, and it ends.
But what is it like?
It’s not like time. Time cannot be stopped. Life can.
Yet, it’s like a river. Rivers can be controlled. Life can be controlled.
So is life like a river? Nah.
It’s not like a river, and it’s not like time…
What is life? What is it like?
Well, I’d say…
Life is whatever you want it to be. Good or bad.
No one else can make you change how your life is except you.
The question now is…
What DO you want it to be?
It’s your choice. Make it a good one.
...Yes, it's a poem. At least I think it is. If it is, it's Free Verse, then. Walt Whitman IS my favorite poet.

...Don't expect me to do this on a regular bases. I only do this when things in my life get screwed up.

What is life?
I don't know.
But lo! I do know!
Life is whatever you want it to be. Good or bad.

Yes, I had to find some way to make a joke... But really, it's beautiful. And right now, life, confusing though it might be, is beautiful as well.
