wisdom and fear

What’s life’s meaning, I search to know.
To ask such questions seems crazy, though;
I must ponder a little here,
Maybe the answers come too slow
To ask may bring thoughts that are queer,
to never search is dreaded fear,
and the scared man becomes a fake,
but wisdom fills the empty sphere.

When one seeks praise they must seek blame
To know pleasure is to know pain
gold is worthy yet life is cheap 
all children want to be famous
but they hate the infamous deep,
and have no strength for vows to keep,
running away from loss like sheep,
they run away from gain and weep.

    In the end the question will be... What have I done to help others and to make the world a better place... while I was here. Possessions, and fame will be left behind and only blow in the wind briefly when we are gone... Good write.
