I am who I am

A restless soul am I
never satisfied with what I find
seeking that which is new to me
made by God as I am -- I am, who I am.

Torn between the rules of life
following them causes me much strife
bored with the same old humdrum
always moving on to something new
made by God as I am -- I am, who I am.

There are other folks  just like me
searching for answers on a restless sea
tossed about like a ship without a rudder
made by God as I am -- I am, who I am.

Recurring tasks becoming boring so soon
following the same old game is a downer for sure
Restless by nature, always seeking a new game
made by God as I am -- I am, who I am.

New sunrises are exciting for sure
new days always bring hope for horizons not seen
searching for the mysteries of life in a never ending game
made by God as I am -- I am, who I am.

Life is but a challenge to seek
mysteries are but puzzles to solve
each day is but a day to enjoy,
made by God as I am -- I am, who I am.

    So you feel that way too! There don't seem to be any answers to the dilemma either but I guess we do find most of it a challenge. This gives something to ponder.

    Yes, I think some people face a greater challenge when their personalities don't jive with what is expected of them. I feel that way a lot! I enjoyed the read!
