Poems :  Life's Purpose
 
Every waking minute,
Every second of each day,
I think of praises to HIM,
In my mind to HIM, I pray.

I’ll shout them from the rooftops,
Cry out from top of hills,
From morn to night I’ll proffer
Praise for HIS healing of my ills.

I try each day to do good
To all my fellows here,
Whom HE has created to inhabit
This earth ~ this global sphere.

My mind speaks words in verses,
Full of rhymes and lines that scan,
Of how rich is the world HE’s created,
For every woman and man.

Why do I sing HIS praises,
Despite all that befalls me?
Because all has a purpose,
But that purpose is just known to HE.

 Re: Life's Purpose
this poem reminds me of the moral behind the book of Job in the old testament. Because you do not mention the name of the HIM or any particular religion this poem has become universal.

 Re: Life's Purpose
I am an Orthodox Jew and as such it is the norm to spell "G-D" without the vowel. Although technically by obeying the third commandment the actual names of the Almighty are not know to us, some have the custom to omit the vowel in "G-D" and in "L-RD" I will always try to not use those two words in case I offend the more orthodox of the Jewish Community, but prefer to use "The Almighty" and to capitalise the Pronouns.
