Purpose In/Of Life?

In the deepest core of our unhappiness
In the longest journey of restlessness
In the stern decision of penance
Do                 you               feel?
We have a purpose to deal
This lies inside us, so deepen but so vague
We observe facts, make opinion and taboo
We distinct between deep and shallow
Our purpose lights the path, which we follow
In meeting our purpose, we break chains
Wear new ones; build homes, leaving old dens
Search mystery, leaving behind inspiring history
Narrowing the gap of virtual and reality
Whenever in my conscience, I see
The question really haunts me
Do we drive ourselves for purpose
Or it is the purpose, which drive us?

Enormous thought,
nicely writ,
bemuse self,
and amuse rest.

Life is great,
and a knowledge shelf.
Find meanings,
of other things.
But never try that,
the same with life.

Deep is it
seemingly a shallow pit..
But deep down there,
you get too lost.

Cheerz! :)

@ IP
Thank u very much.. :)

Well, I think...If everything in life is determined..and if our choice which we made is just an illusion....that simply means that throughout our life..our purpose drives us.....
A purpose, bestowed upon us by Supreme being for every one..

cheers !!

I think its both ways true:
I live because I want to live and I want to live because I live!!

Its like a circle you know..
I hope you got my idea..

@ R S

Thanks a lot.. :)

A new paradigm of thinking... :)

I live because I want to live...is this not depicting that living is your choice... ?
I want to live because I live....Is this not depicting that you are destined to live... ?
