Can't Put the Pen Down…

The Meaning of Life


The Meaning of Life
lives in a candy store jar
without a label.

The jar is never
full or in the same spot twice,
except when it is.

The candy inside
is sweet, sour, and salty
all at the same time.

The tang on your tongue
makes you shake your head and wince
and yet you want more.

The candy store is
open and yet you stand with
your nose to the glass.

The Meaning of Life
is just taking what you need
and leaving the rest.
