Elusive Magnum Opus

They say destiny is calling
Yet I can稚 hear a damn sound
Leaving me anguishedly reckless
Never met anything more elusive
Than my personal Magnum Opus
Seeing others able to capture theirs
Theirs which seem to shimmer with
Galvanizing lucidity
They say one only need to look within
Since it is only us that possess the answer
To which makes our heart burn with desire
But what the fuck is it?
Is it makeup, even though it made me feel
Alive for senior year to get attention?
Is it writing? Since I would write stories
To share with teachers and other students
Enjoying the aliveness I felt in 2nd grade
Or is it dancing..the way I would dance
That would bring shock and awe
On others disposition
That one lasting legacy I値l leave
On loved ones
On Earth and humanity
What is it
Or is it something
I値l always chase for lifetimes
After lifetimes
And it値l always be just out of my reach
While I slowly corrode away
In lonely frustrated angst
