"For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die..."

The wind is moving,
But I am standing still.
A life of pages
Waiting to be filled.

A head that's full of dreams.

My place in this world!
My place in this world...!
Michael W. Smith, "Place In This World"

So, of course, you must make yourself a purpose. It is terrible to not have a purpose. It is death."
