Nsiki Gwala ~ What Is Life?

What is life?
Is it being able to breath and eat?
Is it victory or defeat?
Is it nature’s birds that sing?
Is it the money, glamour and bling?

Is life being able to wake up every day,
Or waking up to clouds that are grey?
Is it a challenge to live for?
Is there victory behind that dark door?

What is life?
Is it a baby being born?
Is it that school bully you scorn?
Is it joy or depression?
Is it a need or an obsession?

Is life merely about wealth and money?
Or a big joke, just something funny?
Is life the beauty during a sunrise,
With it bringing new hope, freedom and surprise?

What is life?
Life is revealed to me every day,
As I tackle all challenges that come my way.
Life itself has a lot to give
And I have that life to live.
