For the first time, I was beginning to understand what life is about

For the first time, I was beginning to understand what life is about.
It starts off when you are a little sprout.
You cry and pout, but you still know what life’s about.
As you are a toddler you are a crawler.  
You think life is all about playing, and saying.  
But, that is not all that life is about.
As you are a young child you can be very wild.
You think life is about having fun, that is definitely a part of life.  
But that is not all that life is about.
As you are an old kid, you think about getting rich with money and gold.  
Still, that is not what life is about.  
As you are an adult, you think that life is about finding a job that you love, but that is not the only thing life is about.
Finally, when you are old and wise you realize what life is about.  Fulfilling your purpose.
