Reflections on one's purpose in life
Today I took a moment to look inside of me;
to ask unanswered questions; to reflect on what I see.
As I looked within my soul, my mirror of complexity,
I asked: what is the cause of my vulnerabilities?
Is it because I've had my share of life's inequities?
Or, because I search for perfection instead of impurities?
Is it because I feel hollow and so alone?
Even though I tell myself - "Girl, you can make it on your own!"
What causes my insecurities? Why do I blame myself?
Am I the cause of my miseries, or is it someone else?
Am I just too serious? Should I just relax and let go?
Should I take life as it comes and let the rhythm flow?
Should I be more patient? Stop worrying and let things be?
Should I let others pull my string and let my love run free?
As I take this time to reflect on what I should and should not be,
I realize that where I end is strictly up to me!
Even though the road ahead, I cannot fully see,
I realize the Lord above controls my destiny.
