Whats My Purpose ?

Post  Sue McDonald on Tue Aug 30 2011, 06:45

Last night I had a phone call
from someone very close
he wasn't very happy
I could hear it in his voice

I think I've lost myself
the saddened voice did say
I don't know what my purpose is
feel I'm losing every way

I asked him what he meant
his words my heart did sting
a tear moved to my cheek
could feel this desperation thing

I get up in the morning
go to a job I hate
come home late at night
where my wife and family wait

My toddler is toddling
all around the house
he's like an uncaged monkey
and runs as fast as a mouse

My wife is heavily pregnant
in pain with size and heat
works hard at her job
to help keep us on our feet

I feel I am a failure
not contributing enough
not finding enough hours....
Mum, life is rather rough

You haven't lost your purpose
or meaningfull part in life
its just that your on overload
and worried about life

Yes your wife is heavily pregnant
with your second child and
yes your little two year old
is running around quite wild !

Son, things will soon calm down
when worry of birth has passed
you have loved ones all around you
always here, no need to ask

Your a man with a heart of gold
who is carrying a mountain
you need to lay it down
then start to walk around it

Take your self some breaths
stand aside and see YOUR life
a happy healthy two year old
and a healthy happy wife

Take some time to see
the love surrounding you
don't push yourself so hard
play with your son out in the yard...

Today I had a phone call
from someone very close
he sounded so much happier
I could hear it in his voice....


As he said, ''Mum I love you,
thanks for being there''....

Hello Sue,

I certainly feel for your son. When I was his age, I worked so hard and thought we'd never get ahead. You gave him good advise. If he keeps moving forward he's going to succeed.

God bless you and them,
David
