What is the meaning of meaning?
I’ve searched and searched, I’m still a-dreaming,
The more I think, the more I’m losing
The meaning of that very thing.
Some say that meaning is the goal,
That we must strive to reach it whole,
But then, what is the goal of striving,
If striving is the thing we’re buying?
Is meaning something that we find,
Or something that we make up kind?
If meaning is something that we make,
Then what I make is what I take.
And if I make my meaning so,
Then meaning has no meaning, oh,
But if I find my meaning out,
Then meaning has a meaning, shout!
So meaning is a mystery,
A thing that’s hard to understand,
But if I think about it lots,
Maybe I’ll find the answer, grand.
What is the meaning of meaning?
Water turned into stone, trenches engrave bones known
God forsaken or forsaken Him, back to water, thirst’s groan
Sadness toast, hat tipped to despair, anger seethes in silence’s lair
Searching for light, sun’s fragments touched, disappearing at night’s glare
Fate’s jaws trapped, something to contemplate, pain religion, belief overdue
Anguish commemorates love’s giving heart, beats in isolation, soul blue.
Life is like a puzzle, with pieces to arrange,
Each one unique, with its shape and its range.
Some are bright and colorful, others dull and gray,
But each one is important in its own special way.
Sometimes it’s hard to see where each piece belongs,
But with patience and effort, we can right the wrongs.
Connect the dots, follow the clues,
And soon the picture will come into view.
There are twists and turns along the way,
And some pieces may be missing, causing dismay.
But keep on searching, don’t lose hope,
For soon enough you’ll find a way to cope.
So take each piece and handle it with care,
For every single one has a story to share.
Put them together, bit by bit,
And watch as the puzzle begins to fit.

Oh how my soul craves for it to be loved
Oh how my soul craves for it to be loved,
A yearning that won’t subside,
I long for someone to hold me close,
And stay right by my side.
The nights can be so lonely,
As I lie awake in bed,
Looking for a love to fill my heart,
And chase away the dread.
I dream of tender kisses,
And warm and loving hugs,
A love that’s pure and true,
And never fades or tugs.
But until that love comes to me,
I’ll keep searching high and low,
For the one who’ll make my heart sing,
And never let me go.
Searching for My True Self
I have been living a lie for so long
Trying to fit in and please everyone
Trying to be someone that I don’t belong
Trying to hide what I really feel and want
But I can’t keep up this charade anymore
I can’t ignore the voice inside my heart
I can’t deny the truth that I adore
I can’t suppress the urge to break apart
I have to find out who I really am
What I really love and what I really need
What I really value and what I really stand
What I really hope and what I really dream
I have to search for my true self and be free

Emptiness lingers like a shadow,
Drifting through my soul like a meadow,
The world around is beautiful and bright,
Yet my heart is heavy, my spirit’s plight.
The sky above is a stunning blue,
The flowers bloom in every hue,
The birds sing sweetly in the trees,
But my emptiness is all I see.
I long to feel the sun’s warm embrace,
To be enveloped in love’s sweet grace,
But emptiness consumes me whole,
A hunger I cannot control.
I search for meaning in every sound,
In every corner of this beautiful world around,
But the emptiness persists, it never fades,
A darkness that clouds my every day.
So I’ll keep searching, though the path is long,
And fill my heart with a joyous song,
For even in emptiness, there is beauty to be found,
In the world around, a beauty that astounds.
There’s an emptiness inside of me,
A vast expanse I cannot see,
It haunts me in my every thought,
A shadowy void that can’t be caught.
I’ve tried to fill it with all I’ve got,
With love and laughter, with things I’ve bought,
But nothing seems to ease the pain,
The void remains, a constant bane.
It’s a weight that drags me down each day,
A burden that I can’t shake away,
A hunger that can’t be satisfied,
A thirst that cannot be denied.
So I’ll keep searching, far and wide,
For something that can fill the divide,
For something that can make me whole,
And soothe the ache within my soul.
My soul’s other half,
A missing piece to complete,
A journey to find true love,
A quest that’s bittersweet.
I’ve searched the world over,
Through mountains and seas,
For that one special person,
Who will bring me to my knees.
It’s a journey full of wonder,
Of joy and pain and tears,
Of hopes and dreams and wishes,
And of facing all my fears.
But I know that I must keep going,
And never lose my faith,
For I believe that love is out there,
And it’s worth the journey and the wait.
So I’ll keep on searching,
With an open heart and mind,
And trust that when I find true love,
My soul’s other half I’ll find.
Empty heart with a cluttered brain,
Lost and confused, feeling the pain.
Thoughts and worries pile up high,
Can’t seem to find a reason why.
Loneliness creeps in, a constant friend,
Memories of love that never end.
Searching for meaning in this life,
Trapped in a cycle of endless strife.
As we explore the paths of life,
We seek knowledge and truth within.
The answers may be hidden in plain sight,
But the endless search never sets alight.
Though the journey is fraught with uncertainty,
We strive on with courage and tenacity.
For sometimes the darkest places lead to the light,
As we search for wisdom on this journey so bright.
