Whats It All About? - Poem by Joy Steele

Talented, merit, accomplishment
Of what? So what?
Who decides, who really knows?
I don't, do you?
Who really cares, besides me?
What's it all about?
I feel for something,
I care about something.
But do you care if I care?
Have you any idea of my need,
The cause of my pain,
The suffering of my soul?
I certainly don't understand,
I don't have the answers, do you?
Dare I care so much?
Dare I reach out so often?
"Let not your heart be troubled,
Neither let it be afraid."...
Dare I believe?
What's it all about?
