The True Meaning Of Life

By Pat A. FlemingPublished: July 2017

The Years have passed by,
In the blink of an eye,
Moments of sadness,
And joy have flown by.

People I loved,
Have come and have gone,
But the world never stopped,
And we all carried on.

Life wasn't easy,
And the struggles were there,
Filled with times that it mattered,
Times I just didn't care.

I stood on my own,
And I still found my way,
Through some nights filled with tears,
And the dawn of new days.

And now with old age,
It's become very clear,
Things I once found important,
Were not why I was here.

And how many things,
That I managed to buy,
Were never what made me,
Feel better inside.

And the worries and fears,
That plagued me each day,
In the end of it all,
Would just fade away.

But how much I reached out,
To others when needed,
Would be the true measure,
Of how I succeeded.

And how much I shared,
Of my soul and my heart,
Would ultimately be,
What set me apart.

And what's really important,
Is my opinion of me,
And whether or not,
I'm the best I can be.

And how much more kindness,
And love I can show,
Before the Lord tells me,
It's my time to go.

There was a lot that went down during the Grammy Awards so it’s understandable if you missed one of the purest moments ever broadcasted at an award show. This year, Lizzo was nominated for a ton of Grammy awards, including Best Pop Solo Performance. The artist was running against some tough competition like Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, and Beyoncé. And as the cameras panned over faces of each artist waiting for the winner to be announced, Lizzo was seen chanting Beyoncé’s name. When her own name was announced, she was genuinely shocked.

 

 

Lizzo took the time during her acceptance speech to make an incredibly impactful Grammy moment. “Thank you to the Academy first of all, this is really f*cking sick, unexpected, really cool,” she started. “I just wanna say this whole week…I be lost in my problems, stressed out and then in an instant, all of that can go away and your priorities really shift and today, all of my little problems that I thought were big as the world are gone and I realize that there’s people hurting right now.”

 

A literal queen!
