WAKE UP..AS THE LIGHT HITS YOUR EYES..
WHAT IS MY PURPOSE?
THE MEANING IN LIFE...
SOME LIVE IT STRONG..OTHERS FALL SHORT..
STRUGGLING THIN..MINDS ABORT
QUICK ENDING..WITH THE CLASH OF A KNIFE..

DAY ONE...HELD IN HANDS..
SMALL CHILD..GROWING..SOON HE WILL UNDERSTAND..
THAT LIFE IS A MERE GAME.. AN SO IS LOVE..
U CAN FIND ANSWERS..ALONE..OR ABOVE..
HAND IN HAND..MOTHER SHELTERS..
SMALL GRASP AN MEANING OF THOSE 4 LITTLE LETTERS..
L...I....F...E..
PLEASE WILL SOMEONE HELP ME?
FOR AT THIS MOMENT OF TIME..I WANDER ALONE..
STILL SEARCHING FOR MY PURPOSE..
IN THIS GREAT BIG HOME
IS THE EARTH SQUARE? OR A GIANT DOME..
QUESTIONS ARISE..BUT YET NOBODY SPEAKS UP..
SCARED..SO WE KEEP OUR MOUTHS SHUT
TREADING FIELDS OF DREAMS..

THE SUN SETS..AND RISES AGAIN..
IT HAS ITS PART..A BEGINING AN END..
SO WHERE IS MINE?
IS IT ALREADY WRITTEN...
OR IS IT HIDDEN
DO I UNCOVER ITS FAULTS AN FLAIRS
DOES ANYONE REALLY CARE?
A FLOWER GROWS..WITH HELP FROM THE SUN
AGES WITH PRIDE..THEN DIES WHEN ITS DONE..
SO U SEE..EVERYTHING HAS A PURPOSE
A CHAIN OF EVENTS
BUT THEN WHY ARE WE SO LOST..AND NOT IN CONTENT?

LIFE CAN BE COMPLEX...OR CAN BE SHORT AS CAN BE
PLEASE SHED LIGHT ON IT..SO THAT I MAY SEE
DONT TELL ME WHAT I SHOULD BE
BUT SEE ME FOR ME...
SO I RUN FASTER...DOWN THE LIT HALLS
STUMBLING DOWN...NOR DO I FALL
SCREAMING WITH JOY...FOR WHATEVER LIES AHEAD..
STAYING POSTIVE..RELAXED..WHY BE MAD INSTEAD?
LETS HOLD HANDS AND SEIZE THE NIGHT FOR OUR OWN
MAKE MY ARMS URS..AND CARRY ME HOME


The author's comments:
I THINK EVERYONE HAS ASKED THAT QUESTION AT SOME POINT IN TIME.." WHAT IS MY PURPOSE?"
ITS NOT A QUESTION THAT CAN BE ANSWERED BY ANY TEACHER OR BY ANY SOLE BEING BUT YOURSELF. ITS NOT A QUESTION THAT YOU WILL FIND THE ANSWER TO IN BOOKS OR OVERNIGHT. ITS A QUESTION WORTH LIVING AND SEEKING. A QUESTION THAT HAS NO BOUNDRIES OR ONE CONCLUSION. SO SEEK YOUR ANSWER AND LIVE THE DREAM. OPEN YOUR EYES AND SCREAM OUT LOUD...LIFE IS YOURS..SO LIVE IT
