Purpose


Sitting alone here in the dark
Wondering where I am going
What direction is my true north
Moreover, will I know Iím there

Have you ever been called things
By people who donít know you
They strike speaking lashing words
Things you wish you didnít feel

Iíve always longed for the good life
The one that is happy and not sad
What would it be like to truly laugh
I canít say, itís hard to remember

Holding on to beliefs of stoicism
Holding back the fears and tears
Holding in feelings of hopelessness
Holding on to crumbling facades

I do not like where Iíve been
And I am not happy here today
However, I don't buy into this
Tomorrow will be a great day

I seek no comfort from people
I seek, only wanting to understand
The passions and purposes in life
That so long ago were driving me.


------------------
Courage is the price that life exacts
for granting peace with yourself.
--Amelia Earhart

Hey - sorry this was missed!
I really like this - depth and feeling.
I hope your tomorrows will be better.
