Unknown Purpose for You


Just know that everything will be alright

because I am gathering nutrients;

Like your intelligence, I will be bright

Like star lullabies of insouciance.

I'll gain even more strength, just please be proud,

also patient to have me; studious

I'll be, so stop with that alarming sound.

Can't cease your anxious tears, that's right, just sniff

away your doubt... but wait... I'm confound.

Can I not fix your torn soul & then lift

your veil of depression and lonely fright?

He said I was to be your greatest gift

but you sent me back... dear mommy, in spite

Not being with you, think me as your light.
