What is it I expect to accomplish
What destination have I been trying to reach
Just what point am I trying to make
Thereís a lot I have to learn  before I can teach

You must please try to understand
I truly do want to participate
But thereís always some hidden part of me
That finds it hard to just cooperate

  My patience is so short
  Yet my lessons oh, so long
  I try to compromise them both
  Through the message in my song

It has not been simple or easy
To figure out my reason for being here
The purpose not always has been clear
Yet,  the meaning  I hold so dear

You must please try to forgive me
For the pain is oh, so great
Itís been so very hard for me
To attempt to assimilate
 
  My time here is so short
  And my mission is so long
  I try to compromise them both
  Through the vision in my song
    
     So tell me  who am I?
     In the bigger scheme of things
     What difference will I make
     What change will I create


       When I try to shine my light
      Upon the mark Ė I cannot hit it
     I must not be very bright
    Because somehow Ė I just donít get it


Long before I was sent on this journey
My Master left instructions a map        a list
Itís taken me a while to realize his purpose
And the lessons Iíve yet to put into full practice

Iíve tried so hard to understand
To speak of LOVE and not of HATE
Itís been so very hard for me
To simply communicate

         So many depend upon spoken words
      I feel as if I canít afford to lose
      Now Iím at the crossroads of my life
      And I must find a way to choose
    
3 roads diverged among the skies and I
            Not able to re-emerge         The glue
       Having melted Ė the trip will crash land
    How will I ever see it through
    When I am so far from the Masterís Plan
         No one else can advise me what to do
  But to compromise it all
  When the final hour is due

    All the pain and suffering in this world
          Itís inhabitants must find true harmony
     I am just one alien girl
                               It will take more than my simple melody


     So just who the #### am EYE
     If others hear my cry
     Will things be different when EYE die
     Just tell me   
Who am I


When I shine my light
      I cannot hit it
      Iím not too brightÖ
      I just donít get itÖ.
