In life there's a purpose,
A purpose of what you should be,
But in others eyes it was different,
A purpose they couldn't see.
She wanted to be something,
Something known and true,
Others looked at her and said "There's nothing great in you"
Her heart felt so empty,as if there's nothing there at all,
I know that I can do it,I can't let others watch me fall.
She prayed to God at night,
Asking him what they don't see,
God what am I missing?
Is there a purpose left for me?
I know your watching over me,and listening to my prayers,
I need your answer to my question,is my purpose really there?
I know I'm gifted in your eyes,please let me know if its worth it,
If I try with all my strength,will there really be a purpose?

You were born an origanal why die a copy?The secret to success is the consistency to pursue.To the world you may be one person,but to one person you may be the world.To receive the right answer,you must ask the right question.Don't worry be happy! :)

we the willing, lead by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. we have done so much for so long with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.

wow. this was good. I really get it, how you think you're really something, but to other people, you don't mean a thing. I can relate.

Very sad and poignant :)

Well written! Keep it up :)
