Who Am I?

by Pett Ezra Isaac

I wanted to become someone,
somewhere.
I have tried a thousand opportunities 
In perforated and opened doors,
it still veers me into an unknown world.

The pain was a different one.
The one unknown,
yet known by God and His people,
Those who are chosen,
can tell of the unknown.

I wanted to face the unknown.
But it felt hard to find faith when
facing the unknown,
I lowered myself down,
And asked myself,
Do I really matter?
