Earth Life Purpose

Life is but a journey,
                                                     
where it leads we do not know.
                                   
We only learn as we go,
                                                 
go from one year to the next.
                                         
We can look back to see,
                                               
see where we have been.
                                               
What is the earth life purpose,
                                       
many will disagree.
                                                       
Each of us,
                                                                   
will need to find it for our self.
                                       
The purpose is personal,
                                               
some may not want to tell.
                                           
If I was to tell,
                                                             
then my purpose would be "love."
