I’ve been told repeatedly
By well-wishers who care for me
That I can be anyone I want to be
Then why am I in such a quandary?
There is a question existential
To find things in my life that are essential
Eliminate things that are inconsequential
And thus live up to my full potential
Many different factors are in competition
For my rather limited span of attention
I am fickle, I cannot prioritize
I don’t know where my greatest passion lies..
What do I truly want, where do I want to go
I have not figured it out, and so
I live life in a perpetual state of confusion
I wonder if self-actualization is just an illusion..
So I live (? or exist) from day to day
Awaiting clarity to appear my way
Maybe the universe has a plan for me
That I am not yet able to see…
