the calling (DAY THIRTY)

the calling

 

we had high expectations for ourselves

big dreamers that we were

 

ready and raring to go

to be great

and to do great

 

so much greatness

we wanted to change world

or so we hoped we would

 

some of us were peacemakers

wanted to rid the world of unnecessary evils

and even the necessary ones

 

edit the dictionary to remove hate from existence

and the same for pain

suffering

chaos

and anything else that had no purpose in this world

(no matter how much character our parents said it would build)

 

others were healers

 

their wings were wide enough to carrying everyone under them

 

and the rest were unsure of what they were meant to do

 

waiting for the epiphany

the realization

to feel useful for once

 

purpose

is in high demands these days

 

it’s far from extinct

but it’s pretty hard to find
