"Always act like you're at the bottom, even if you're at the top."

I never understood the role I play in this life.
Am I meant to be alone, or a mother and a wife?
I never understood how every person has a purpose
Because, thus far, mine has never surfaced.
I never understood how we can live on not knowing.
Doesn’t it get to you, constantly growing?
I never understood what I have to do.
No one is telling me, not one single clue.
I never understood exactly how it works.
Do you realize what it is as soon as it starts?
I never understood why I’m put through these struggles.
Over time the stress just seems doubled.
I never understood how some figure it out with ease.
So, someone, tell me why I’m hear today please.

I kind of just wrote this because I was in the mood. It started out as a short story, but then I figured it would be better as a poem.
