The Calling


A poem by Brother Karl Dobson

The Calling

Who are we, and what are we suppose to be,
that is the question.
Scientists have proved DNA plays a part,
and that a basic start.
Memories of once-forgotten fantasies stay
when we used to play pretend.
The world of the imagination could create
any nation from a look in a book.
All too soon expectations of society, and
others dreams become a reality.
In the middle of life, a signal from your soul
lets you feel something’s wrong.
In the mirror, your stare at your face, and
wonder if you’re in the right place.
There have been people who have lived
several lives upon this earth,
and changes happened, initiated by
a series of circumstances.
The days of our lives seem to be a constant
search of who and what we can be,
and sometimes we finding our calling.
Then we search for the knowledge of how
we can do what we want to do,
and this feeling within us drives us to make
the changes that need to be made.
Changes are made with challenges, and
feelings, time, and money are the costs.
Without these changes, though, I believe
the soul wanders, and the calling’s lost.
