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..
