If the 'created'... developed a relationship with the 'creator' there would never be a problem.


Who am I...


I’ve asked myself time and time again~
Who am I and Why am I here?
So confused about the ‘who’ and the ‘why’~
I sought to make all things clear

I've run to and fro searching for meaning ~
but no answer did come my way
while kicking and fighting to make it make sense
an obstacle kept blocking my way

I ducked to the left but it was right there
on my right side ~ it was there too!
Exhausted and tired I halted my search
But just for a season or two

I cried aloud with my last breath
WHO AM I and WHY AM I HERE?
I need to know the answer
In anguish I released a tear

To my surprise the obstacle spoke
compassion flowed from its lips
but I needed to reach the end of my 'self'
before he would reveal the true script

It spoke so clear and concise when it said~
I made you and I have a plan
your purpose is at the center of my Will
but the choice is at your command

I molded you and I shaped you~
into your nostrils I breathed my breath
I've loved you and I've protected you
though you've never acknowledged my death

you ran right pass with no regard
but I love you so much in deed
you'll never know your full and true self
except you find it in me

I'm your Abba, Daddy, Yashewa
Now let me direct your path?
Just trust that I have your life mapped out
then follow my Word without doubt

who you’ll become will amaze you
it was written from the start
you’ll be better than you could imagine
if we both do our part

like scales falling away from my eyes
I can now see why I am here
First one step, then two ~finding my way
no drama, confusion nor fear

So peaceful are my days and nights
I no longer wear a facade
I Understand now ~ I know for a fact
I am Syd and I belong to God

A most beautiful piece alluding to many questions for one to ponder, very artfully written...

Be always safe,

Deep refletive ontologic spiritual thoughts... "Who Am I" developed the subject dealt to a wise picture.

In admiration,
