Creating Me

7 days and counting,
I've awaited destiny.
Longing for my heart and soul,
To soon emerge to me.

7 days and dreaming,
I've crisscrossed barren shore.
Searching over drifting tide;
God only knows what for.

7 days and thinking,
A week long, more or less;
I've reflected on the book of life,
It's pages to caress.

7 days and resting,
I've wondered among stars.
Gleaming flames of fortune,
Unaccountabley far.

7 days and suffering,
Heedless burdens swell.
Extending through the absence,
Answers not to tell.

7 days and building,
But time to enrich trust.
Meandering like a broken dream,
Gaining what I must.

7 days and finding,
What's fated for my life.
I'll glimpse what I'm becoming;
Escape all fading strife.

7 days and me.


The author's comments:
The inspiration for this poem came from how much I've changed over the past year. It's about discovering who I am and where I'm meant to be. The "7 days" represent creation; the creation of who I am.
