The Hidden Purpose

What is the expectation of a human being?
How do we become the best we can be?
How do we decide in which direction to strive,
But avoid being something we are not?
Maybe we are here to be a savior.
Maybe we are here to be the next great leader.
We will never know until the telling moment arrives.
It may be the moment when you feel that tingling sensation in your body.
But you have to put yourself out there.
You have to be the one to say,
“Today, I am going to do something I have never done before.”
We all seek that moment when we figure out
To what we will dedicate our future.
We all have a purpose in this life,
The question is: What is it?
