Purpose

Life can become a lot more fun
If you give it a sense of purpose
Life becomes a void if it has none
A black hole that can usurp us

A purpose - it need not mean
Anything lofty, majestic or profound
It’s a thing from which you can glean
Contentment, pleasure, joy unbound

A purpose - it imbues your simplest act
With a deeper reason or aspiration
It can help your work have an impact
It can help you provide inspiration

A purpose - even the simplest one
Can work wonders for a woman or a man
It really can be quite as simple as
To be helpful to others when you can

A purpose - it’s like a beacon that guides
The ships and boats through a storm
With its light they can navigate the tides
It can illuminate, educate and inform

All the great philosophers of history
Have asked what’s life and how to live it
I have found that there’s no great mystery
The purpose of your life is what you give it
