Existentialism, a word that's often heard in philosophy

But what does it really mean, and why is it so important, you see?

It's a way of thinking about life, and the choices that we make

It's about embracing our freedom, and the risks we take.

Existentialism says that we must take responsibility

For the things we do, and the paths that we choose to see

We must confront the difficult questions, about meaning and purpose in life

And find our own answers, to ease the internal strife.

It's about recognizing our own mortality

And living our lives with intentionality

It's about finding meaning in our own unique way

And living each day to the fullest, come what may.

Existentialism reminds us, that life can be tough

But it's through our struggles, that we can learn and grow enough

It's about living in the present, and seizing the day

And finding our own way, no matter what others say.

So let us embrace the philosophy of existentialism

And live our lives with purpose, and with optimism

Let us make the most of our freedom, and live with intention

For it's through our choices, that we can find true liberation.
