The stream flows over you.
Cutting through rock and granite.
Carving mental pictures in it.
Shaping your physical and mental view.
What is your cause?
What will make you stop and pause?
Is it homelessness or cancer research?
Is it peace or educational solutions reached?
What truly tickles your fancy?
What would wake you from your fantasy?
Is there a cause that you believe in?
An inequality you could help make even.
Follow your passions they all say.
Only then will you find your way.
Only then will you be able to pay your bills.
Only then will you find the will.
Submit to a higher power and the water’s flow
that will direct your path and grow.
But what if this is not true?
What if this is all a distorted view?
What if you never find your passion?
What if you were not sent here for a mission?
Does that not mean you deserve the same?
Are we all put here to find fame?
Or are we all part of a collective decision?
Free will just a disguise to continue division.
All this I ask as I try and find my new path.
Many questions unanswered in my present and past.
The future holds the answers for which I seek.
I will know more each day and week.
For I am open to the cause I have sought.
But I am about done with the battles I have fought.
Ready to let the stream just take me.
Wherever it leads me I will soon see.
I will keep my head above water and continue to float.
Let the waters take me out to the sea in my life boat.
Hopefully the waters will not be too strong.
Hopefully my decisions I make are not too wrong.
For I don’t feel my free will is so free anymore.
But I am still looking forward to the adventure in store.
