Poem – On Purpose (By Chanacee Ruth-Killgore)

On Purpose

By: Chanacee Ruth-Killgore



Not on water do I walk

and, it’s true,

I’m challenged by dry land.

I can do, though, what I can.

It is that alone which matters.

All else lingers…

shiny and superfluous,

full of false promises and deception.

I can, however, is honest,

humble, bold!

And I know that which I can

is the must and the meant

of what I am to do.
