Purpose for life

Why Are We Here?

There is not a single person out there that has not wondered why they are here. Why are we living? What's our purpose on Earth? Especially if we seem to be suffering so much lately. With mental illnesses at their high I decided to share a small part of a poem that I have in my book "Hidden Light " with you. It's called "Purpose" and I wrote it for exactly that reason.

Why on earth was I born when it seems like I suffer so much? I wrote "Hidden Light" for people with mental illnesses and even those who are just going through hard times to see that even then, during those dark times there is light, there's some good. It's just hidden.

Purpose

What am I to do?
What is my destiny?
I have no idea, not a clue
Feeling lost and empty.
What is my dream?
What is my future?
I beg thee to listen to me,
I beg thee to answer.

To This Day

It's true that even now I still don't know the answer and I don't really believe I ever will. Right now it seems the bad days out number the good and that is why I bring up this poem again. "Purpose". While I'd still like to know my purpose in life I read the words now and somehow they hold another meaning for me. Interesting on how that works out.

If you are suffering from a mental illness please seek out help because believe me you are never alone out there, no matter how often it seems you are. Trust me, I always feel like I am. I just have to keep on telling myself I'm not.

If you enjoy poetry and would like to read a few that may help you realize you're not alone check out my book "Hidden Light."

Thank you Terry for reading again and for your comment. :) I had a goal in life and it was to publish a book. I have three published now. Though I may be an indie author it's better than nothing. :)

It's great to hear about your three books. My goal was to publish a book too. I self-published three with blurb.com.

I'm an indie author as well. It doesn't matter. The important thing is to get your message out. And you are definitely doing that here?

Keep up the great work.

Thank you for expressing this out Crescent Moon.

I have periods of low and blue, when I can't find the pillar to tie myself on (like in the myths of Orpheus and the mermaids).

When I do go down, I have a drink or two and try to get my mind down and below to most simple way of life, that all our ancestors had in the last 20 centuries.

"What is the purpose of life?"

To procreate and feed your progeny.

It is very simple way of life. Enjoy and embrace It.

Someday you will go away for good.

Your purpose is to leave something good, that will keep living in your place.
