Reflections

I just turned 25 and right now I am reflecting.
I am reflecting on where I have been and where I want to go. 
I am reflecting on the things that,
I have done and the things I want to do.

 I have changed my mind many times.
Times that I have tried to figure out what, 
what is it that I want to do? 
Where, where is it that I want to go? 
The answer is the same, I don't really know. 

I want to be this and I want to go there,
I want to be right and I want to be fair. 
I want to help people,
all people just the same maybe I don't even need to know their names.
What do you call that, what does it mean? 

So right now I am reflecting on,
who I was and who I want to be come.
There are so many things to be and so many things to become. 
All I need is one, one place to go, one thing to do, 
one thing to be; but what that is I don't really know. 

I know that I could do this or I could do that, 
I could be this or I could be that.
If I could do it all then I would be just fine.
On the other hand it is said that you,
can't have your cake and eat it too. 

So I ask you: What am I to do?
Am I to be this or that, but you cant answer that and you can't answer this. 
I just turned 25 and right now I am reflecting, 
because right now I don't really know.
 I don't really know, but one day I will. 
One day I will!!!
