“ Raison d’Être ” ~ by design ~

You plough

Through life

At first uncertain

Of the reason,

You learn endeavour

Not sure of purpose

For its season,

Then search

The darkness

With youthful zeal,

For meaning

‘Twould serve

To understand,

By what design

Life holds a measure

Of raison d’être…

 

Now you’ve gone

Journey beyond,

Inclined you pause,

If you’re to find

A worthy cause,

With or without

Said raison d’être!
