How to live?

<h1>How to live?</h1>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The voices from the cold Himalayas sang</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Loud and powerful their beautiful voices rang</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Of life being a pursuit of the meaningful</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Against hedonism & being selfishly wasteful</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">From the cafes of Brazil, the voices replied</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Live without fear of tomorrow, they implied</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Said life existed only in the present moment</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">In giving up on the past & future’s torment</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Philosophers from Greece proceeded to say</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Be purposeful & carefree, at the end of the day</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Said it was a balance that must be achieved</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">To attain harmony was best, they all agreed</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The African man replied as we watched the snow</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The answer lies in the fact that we do not know</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And truly acknowledging us never really knowing</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Ensuring knowledge & perspectives are growing</span></p>
