Meaning of life

on the moon

as I lay there watching the
stars twinkling in the sky above,
I saw an angel riding on a white horse
coming towards me!

rubbing my eyes in disbelief
and sitting up straight,
my eyes got glued to the
events unfolding right in-front of my eyes

dragging me away from where I was,
putting me on the back of the horse,
she rode into the night sky,
and into the twinkling stars!

as the rush of the moment faded away,
my fear gave way to wonderment
as I realized the place
I was going to!

sitting comfortably on the edge,
watching the world swirl around,
I could only smile at the madness
that everyone calls life!

day by day, doing the same
over and over again,
trying to find the meaning of life
everywhere but inside!
