I was a little lost this week trying to find inspiration for a piece. I came up with no emotions, wreckage, or anything. All I found this week was a little introspection into questioning who I am, and where I am in life. Sometimes, that is just fine to do. The confusion we feel right now will only bring us understanding later in life. And maybe, sometime soon, I’ll understand.
I don’t really know what to write today Because I normally feel inspired by something I see Or hear Or feel Or imagine But today I find myself a little lost I don’t really know what I’ll do tomorrow Because I have a thousand things that I need to do Or clean Or pay Or go to But today I came out empty-handed I don’t really know what my purpose is sometimes Because I’m not sure what I have to offer that this world needs Or would be better because of Or help another person Or even really care about But maybe I’ll know what that is tomorrow I don’t really know if I’m enough sometimes Because I find that I am not enough for myself Or for my parents Or my friends Or my professors But maybe I’ll realize that I am sometime soon I don’t really know who I am all the time Because sometimes I find myself questioning if I’m doing the right thing Or right job Or right major Or right path in life But I think I am getting somewhere I don’t really know what the future holds I don’t even know what tomorrow holds I just hope that for today, just myself will suffice I don’t know exactly who I am yet But that is just okay with me Because where I am right now is where I need to be To be who I need to be for the next chapter in my life
