Life Is Meaningless

Life Is Meaningless

"As I wrote, I felt uneasy. I didn’t want to write a hopeless song when there was so much within our world that seemed hopeful. I didn’t want to package meaninglessness as the only answer to “why am I here?” However, I didn’t want to wrap the song up in a bow, selling a happy ending as fake as our airbrushed lives on social media. I didn’t want to resolve the journey by telling people I had your answer to happiness; because that’s not real life. That’s not how Ecclesiastes ends. How do I give an honest voice to desperation and doubt, how do I give space for them within our current liturgy of buying contentment and hacking your life towards happiness? 
    I knew as many of do, that the rhythms that we engage in daily actually sap life out of us. Yet we continue to engage in them as if they will eventually lead to a more fulfilled life. 
What is the better story? Is there one? What if this is the only narrative?"
