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.
