I Don’t Know

I don’t know.
Is it okay to say that?
I don’t have it figured out.
Am I supposed to?
It’s hard living
when I don’t know,
but I’m learning.
This is my first time.
I have dreams.
I have goals.
But other than that –
I don’t know what I’m having for breakfast tomorrow,
lunch, or dinner.
Let alone today.
Or what I’ll be doing in 5 years,
10 or 20.
I might be dead.
Well, it’s the truth.
In my heart, I know,
I’m going to be okay.
It’s my mind I struggle with.
I don’t know.
But I’m anxious to find out.
I woke up,
I’m breathing,
I must still have a mission.
