The Quandary

There are demons in my head telling me,
That I am just a drop in the rain to be lost in the sea,
I am part of a generation which fights for its own identity,
So I want my own game and individuality,
I want the world to talk about me in awe and wonder,
That I am here to stay and am not a passing thunder,
Deeds of mine should not be soon forgotten,
Nor gains of mine should be thought as ill-gotten.
But, alas, I wake up everyday with sadness,
That eats away at me while pushing me closer to madness,
I feel alone in this battle called Life,
And so I only wish if my family were here or i had a loving wife,
Tried I have to find a girl for me,
A girl who adores me for who I am and whatever I might be,
But , alas, the girl I did find, and love, has her own game and individuality,
And is not ready, yet, for marriage to be the eventuality.

I am an introvert and just a software developer, living miles away from people who love me, searching for the meaning of life and what makes me happy.
