Poetry: The Question

I get regular hits on several of my poems, with many of those people going to the poetry category and looking at my other efforts. I just realized that one of my efforts was not included within my poetry category because it was part of my post hosting the XXX Christian Carnival. So in an effort to include that little bit of verse with all the rest, I have decided to post it separately. I think the poem is self-explanatory, but it might help to know that the impetus for writing it was the radical change going on in my life at the time, which in many ways was being turned up side down.

The Question

There are many things that I could have been
Many things that I could yet be
Yet one thing lies beyond my keen
God, what would you have of me?
