i am but a shadow of who i once was a small speck
yet i know what life is where it came from where it goes
for i have met myself crossed the chasm with me
i have become one with the purpose of who i am

i look upon this world and see the strife the confusion
i watch as others grapple with life fearing to see more
observing the shifting of blame from one to another
i have become one with the purpose of who i am

there are no saviors to what we have created never will be
we are our own salvation should we dare to look at ourselves
see what we have done see where we should advance to
i have become one with the purpose of who i am

change is difficult to make yet change develops survivors
giving one the chance to carry on and become a legacy
a legacy of what there can be if only we take the leap forward
i have become one with the purpose of who i am

Introspective and insightful; I appreciate the philosophical perspective that you have shared via your verse here, Mary. The theme presented through your words is not unlike the one that I share in a poem that I have posted here at AD entitled, "The Power of One." Thank you, Mary. Love and best wishes,

Regis
