Raison d’être

It is the purpose of one’s existence.

It is the most dominant reason in one’s life.

Inhale the air of confidence.

What are you willing to sacrifice?


Awaken to hope, change and persistence.

Go in search of your destination

Continue on the path of benevolence.

Travel the journey of determination.


Bask in the sun and walk along the shores of significance.

Raging waters has made its attempt to wash away the sands of commitment.

Strike down the ordinance of arrogance and ignorance.

Diplomacy takes the lead while Trust lies dormant in the shadows with the constituent.


Perseverance presides over the house of accomplishments.

Endurance lies in the center core of one’s soul.

Application brings reality to people/group achievement.

Every second and every minute brings you closer to your goal.


Claw and scratch to your hands bleed, avowing to denounce discrimination.

Quality of life cannot be viewed through the lens of fear, pain, suffering, nor abandonment.

Consequences of the bloodshed of our children scarred and disrupted our nation.

We remained steadfast and vigilant only to be acknowledged by disparagement.


What is so important to keep one’s breath flowing?

Did you analyze every single choice?

What kept your heartbeat ticking as your mind kept going?

Existence resides here in one’s voice.


It is the purpose of one’s existence.

It is the most dominant reason in one’s life.

Death, as we know, is imminent.

Suicide carries a weighted price.

    once a person defines there own purpose of living then that person is free from just existing but is actually living. finding purpose is pathway to inner peace.

      That is the very reason why I am constantly retaliated against, single out on the job, under constant excessive surveillance, and discriminated against. You work there and you know Walmart doesn’t like people who tell the truth or speak up for themselves. The only purpose I am suppose to have is following directives only.
