I ask what is my purpose in being here
and You smile and say,
you must wait for the answer until another day.
I ask what is my purpose, why won’t You tell
but You just smile again, and say, well ….
If I tell you now then where is the mystery
that has confounded humans from the beginning of history?
If I tell you or even give you a hint
then in your eyes there is no longer the glint
that comes from knowing there is something to find
that only you can discover of the wondrous kind.
If I tell you now it’s something that’s free
that does not carry the value that was meant to be.
But when you discover all on your own
your purpose in being, you are the queen of your own throne
and your life has meaning that can only come
from your knowing fully you are part of the One.
