How do I find sustenance

Where do I look for substance

How do I go about trying to find

A purpose in my life that can be aligned

With my abilities and core values

A purpose that finds me, not one that I choose..


I thought my purpose in life would be

To work as a physician tirelessly

That fulfill me only partially

I have realized this unfortunately..


I write, but it is difficult to say

If I shall find my purpose one day

Between the lines of a verse I write..

I admit that writing does ignite

A passion within me that further implores

Me to write better, and write more


As a mother my purpose is to raise

My child well, to teach him to face

All curveballs in life with equanimity

In shaping him well, maybe my purpose I would see


Maybe my purpose in life does not lie

Among these options, maybe I

Am supposed to embrace every day

Wholeheartedly, with enthusiasm in every way

Maybe the purpose of my life lies in being exuberant

Maybe my purpose is to live life to its greatest extent..
