Waking up into this world
Left me with unanswered questions.
What was the purpose to my existence?
I could not be a coincidence.
Where was the meaning in this madness
they call life?
I knew there was more to me
Then the textbook’s explanation
Maybe it’s because I’m from the x-generation
I searched for this missing piece of the puzzle
The unknown element
I absorbed books of knowledge
But my hunger for the truth was still unsatisfied
Google offered me advice
But all this did not suffice
I then went to a man as old as time
He told me what I seek is inside
Wondering what he could mean I strove to succeed.
The greatest artist or the best dressed?
Did I just have to be better than the rest?
Perhaps first team or even the highest IQ?
But as for what was still missing,
I had no clue.
Then sitting on the edge of the world
I began to see what life could have in store
What I was looking for
was not something that one can find
Excellence is how you live
One day at a time
