My Purpose? - Poem by Brittany Marsh

I wish i knew my purpose
Why i was put on earth
Why my mother gave me up
Soon after my birth
I traveled far to be happy
But everything is gray
I wish the pain inside
would just go away
Not a lot of grief
Trouble and even fear
Where am i going
Who will i be
In this troubled land
What they call society
I wonder about my future
What i'm going to do
What's in store for me
I don't have a clue
I lay in my bed in night
In the dark trying to think
But all see is life
Flash by me in blank
Who am i; what am i
Who will i become
Somone; no one
Or still; your so dumb
Somday i'll be rich
Have money everyday
And those who looked
Down on me
Will surly have to pay
Not through revenge
But rather jealousy
They'll remember me
And wish they were good to me

    What they call society
