Many of us feel the need to question life. Sometimes we are fortunate to find the answers we seek, and sometimes we find ourselves just drifting endlessly, searching for the answers that seem to constantly elude us.

This poem originally was published in Poems on Life

I sometimes find I'm drifting
Through this life without effect;
I often wonder if I'm truly
Worth what I've been blessed.

I search through days that have been hard,
To try to understand,
The many trials that I have known,
The life that I have had.

You see me in my daily grind,
So confident and strong;
Yet when I am alone, I question
Just where I belong.

I often try too hard I find,
To analyze and guess,
To scrutinize, investigate
My life I will confess.

For somewhere deeper, there must be
Some meaning to this life,
Some way to make a difference,
Give a reason for this strife.

Is there some hidden meaning?
Some agenda to be found?
A greater purpose waiting
If I care to hang around?

It teases and it taunts me,
Always slightly out of sight;
A hazy vision out of reach,
Where darkness hides the light.

I struggle to bring clarity
To what awaits me there,
And yet this weak illusion
Always fades before my stare.

It seems the harder that I try,
To focus through the haze,
Just serves to add more questions,
Through my endless, tired gaze.

Perhaps I'm trying just too hard,
To understand it all,
For can we ever truly know
Just what we have in store?

Each incident, each moment passed,
Just adds upon the next,
But in the end, will I find truth ...
Or will I be perplexed?

Perhaps I make it harder
Than it has to be sometimes,
But will my searching bring to me
My meaning over time?

Or will it leave me broken,
And confused as I feel now,
While questions bring no solitude,
To this, my wrinkled brow.

  • Mayra
    I guess we all come to a point in life and ask ourselves "why are we here". I can say that I think about my future,a lot, but have been told not to. I guess we should accept the way we feel, because everyone else feels the same. Excellent poem, I hope the next is just as good as this one :)

    You touched on the meaning of life. We start our journey through life searching for all those things we need to know, we then question them and off we go again searching for new meaning. I was searching for poems to express the loss of my 16 year old son that was killed in a work accident, and came acroos yours, Well done I love this poem and will add it to my sons album. Thank you and best wishes Karen Hudson.

  • Shelly
    If I had the ability to write about how I feel or think, this would be the poem I would write. It says exactly how I feel and addresses the confusion I feel the more I seek the understanding. We have to go on faith and follow our gut feeling when we don't see clearly the path. Thank you for this poem. I love the name and as you can see by my email name that I to am drifting thru this very brief life.

    i love this poem! I have used this poem for a lot of my seventh grade projects. one of the reasons why i love this poem and choose it above all the others is because this poem describes my personality. and frankly, looking at all the other comments, i would think that alot of the other fans feel the same way about this poem. i am in eighth grade now and i am back to this poem for another project. **Thank you Kit McCallum, for having wrote such a wonderful poem to inspire us, young readers

Hope ya don't mind anna

  • ARNA
    i love the poem. it tells a lot of what i'm feeling now. you know it makes a difference when i'm able to write what i felt, it gives relief how much more when i read it. Somehow it helps me understand my self better. to the author. thanks for taking pain in expressing what you felt i don't have to express mine coz you did it for me already. More Power and May the Lord God Almighty continously use you for His glory!
  • mira
    mcCallum. i just want to say thats a great poems not because of the words or anything else not but because i think its kinda your life and if its not , i can sure you thats for sure my life but the diffrent between me and you that i find the answer for the question why. and thats simply is: destiny. everything happen for us is for a reason and you might not know the reason now or never you just should have faith in god and that he knows whats best for us . and stop wondering and just try to move on ,then your life will be much easier believe me i've been there.

  • Jenna
    I have this english project where i have to pick a poem and a song that work well together and write a reflection. I knew what song i wanted( New Slang by The Shins) but picking a poem was tough. This is my 5th day looking(i have been looking in poetry books with Robert Frost and Alden Nowlan) but yours is the only one that i feel has truley sent my message across. You can't know what life means, but people still think so much and hard about it. So when I read your poem with music,I also begin to drift.
  • Melanie
    It was like I was writing the poem. it was nice to know that someone feels the same as I do. Good job!

    At this time I really needed something to lift my spirits with work and school and my child and I feel so unorganized and this poem was the best thing that I could have read to lift my spirits and make me feel like maybe I am pushing myself too much and I need to look at the brighter things in life which is my waking up each and everyday and just living for my family who deeply depends on me to succeed. Thank you so much for your inspirational poem please keep up the good work, there are people who read these poems for guidness or just a warm feeling to let them know it is okay to feel what your feeling at that point in your life. Once again Thank you.
    This really hits home it's as if you understand what so many people are going through.

  • Sera
    i found your poem touching in shape and sentiment. it reminded me of a quote by anthony de mello as a new comer, i am not sure if it is appropriate to post it here, so please forgive me if i erred. here it is People mistakenly assume that their thinking is done by their head; it is actually done by the heart which first dictates the conclusion, then commands the head to provide the reasoning that will defend it.
  • Nikki
    Beautiful poem. It flows very well and just about made me cry thank you

    I cannot agree with the author more. The poem describes with incredible clarity how I sometimes feel about life
  • Carla A+!! I greatly enjoyed your poem! It's very well thought out and flows nicely. Plus, I also liked the fact that I could relate very much to its meaning since it's a "place" I visit and ponder with my own life.

    I really liked it, sounded like the questions that I continue to ask myself, glad others have the same feelings. Your were able to put your thoughts to words, thanks for doing that and just not thinking about them. We may spend too much of life thinking about it and not living it. I enjoyed, thanks.
