A Purpose From Above

Secretly in my heart I am weary
Pondering a purpose from above
Even though I know God's love
This life at times has been teary

Has my life has been in vain
Lost in this place we call earth
I have been this way since birth
Wondering what keeps me sane

I count all my blessings in life
And to a stranger I openly smile
With hopes it stays there awhile
Helping those with their strife

So is this my purpose from God
Sending a little kindness and love
Coming from that big guy above
If this is his plan I feel flawed

    Welcome aboard, Ed. My middle name is Edward. Your poem ponders some good points. I like its honesty in relating a person's feelings in life. I find praises to God is comforting when I need affirmation.
