To love,

To serve,

And to allow others to do the same for you.

Is this the point of life?

Is this the reason I was placed here?

I wish I knew,

I wish I could experience my life,

One day at a time,

Without having to worry about

Why I am doing what I am.

Do I need a reason?

I wish I could tell you,

I wish I knew.

Why do I feel so different?

So set apart from everyone else I know?

I love people so much,

Never ceasing to be absolutely in awe

Of all that they are capable of.


I don't feel at home around most,

As though I haven't found my own niche.

Why can't I just be like someone else?

The supposed "normal"?

I wish I knew.

Why is it that I'm so incapable of 

Being at home in my own skin?

Why can't I find the same sort of 

Self-love that I see others express?

Even when I know I must love myself

Before I'm able to fully love others?

I wish I knew.

I wish I knew.
