The meaning!

I was once asked a question by my peers " What is the meaning? Why are we here" I pondered
the question for days walking around hazed glazed but one morning i woke from a deep
slumber and looked at the ground and began to wounder " Why are we here? What is are purpose?"

For a long time a forgot the question a walked around in my own confection. Then there was
a sound in my ear a whisper that seemed to say "Come here!". I followed my gut hoping to
see a sandwich, a tooth brush but all i saw was me to be correct my reflection in the
water so i washed my my hands and i saw it the meaning.

I found my friend and we talked for a while passing on stories and friendly smiles and he
asked me once more " Why are we here?" I smiled and laughed and shook my head " I wondered
mt self but here it is " I looked at a puddle near by and looked with wounder i saw my self
and took his shoulder " The meaning is to live for you and all your wounder, What others
think is nothing but a sunder, in the end you do whats right to live one more day and
fight the good fight."

    Good deduction, keep going that direction, and let your friend perfect, this notion. Sincerely Moses
