I WONDER…?

As I wonder what life has in store for me,

          I deal with my fears of inadequacy.

Not sure where it is I’m going,

          Wondering if my insecurities are showing.

I think carefully as to what it is I need,

          Should I slow down or pick up my speed?

What is it, that I must find?

          Where is my thread in this grand design?

Thinking and pondering, what it is I must do,

          Saying that I’m worthless…Could this be true?

My heart and my mind are battling, going their separate ways,

          As I wonder, when will something sensible remain?

Sitting and watching, day-by-day,

          As life simply slips further and further away.

As I encounter my thoughts, dreams, and things that I own,

          My fear rises as I travel down the road of the unknown.

Just trying to put things together and get them done,

          Going through the journey, surrounded, yet alone, wondering about that special one?

Looking at what life has to offer, not sure what I see.

          Is this only happening to me?

I wonder…?
