Life at its Best

How important is a moment?
It all depends on if it’s your last
A moment among many is not much,
For a moment can only be so fast.

But if that moment were happy,
Would it mean so much more?
Do we exist to be happy?
Is life without happy moments a bore?

Or is life about feeling,
About trying and chore?
Is life about comfort,
Or rather about potential you explore?
