    Do I actually have a purpose as I am told I do?
    Am I needed to make a difference in some other person's future?
    Since I don't know what my purpose is and I have yet to cease the shedding of tears,
    Can somebody please tell me, why am I here?

    My personal life is literally nonexistant
    To let someone know how I feel is hard, so in doing so I'm hesitant
    I don't feel I'm appreciated as I should be
    Even making an honest friend is a process in itself
    Can someone tell me, is there a need for me?

    Every day I cry and there's a sullen look on my face
    Is it hard to believe that my emotional being is a terrible disgrace?
    If I smile, will it light up the world,
    Or rather the room, where there is left only one memory of my girl?

    I'm trying to survive, but probably not hard enough
    Living my life is hard as it is,
    I wonder how people can make it if their lives are so rough
    If I talk to God, will He make my mission clear,
    Or will I wake up one morning, not being noticed by others, and find out, overnight, I vanished and disappeared?

    it's easy to feel like there is no meaning
    no reason for your being
    that you don't matter
    and can't climb up the ladder
    eye lenses of pain
    over and over again
    your purpose can't be found
    and no one hears your sound
    you've got to be patient
    you've got to have faith
    that your being on earth
    is not a mistake
    hold on
    be strong
    there will be reprieve
    you've got to believe

    but once in
    awhile things
    come out
    and you go
    though rough times
    ta make ya strong
    for whats comin..
    hold ya head up
    be proud..
    most love thy yourself
    and have faith...
    in time not yours but HIS GOD
    it will all show...much love...
    just a Angels view :wink:
