The Need to Explore Me

I feel a need to explore,

Not just the outside, seeking things of the world for their sake,

But inside, where I can become close to what is my essence,

What makes me tick, who made me, why I became at all.


Is this selfish or just the quiet time needed to reflect and find,

Whatever it is I am supposed to be doing here,

Aside from rising, dressing, working, caring for others, sleeping,

And doing it again. And again.


I guess in the end I did not have a choice but to start, as I AM,

Now I have to discern, to find answers, to reach the truth.
