Existential crisis..

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…
