Guided & Protected

I may not understand why all this is,
I’ve been guided & protected through this,
I am still here to write this poem,
For right now here is my home,
Simple words, an essence to know,
This takes me in the way it will go,
I feel that regardless or with regard,
I can make this easy or hard,
If I want I can connect to enjoy,
If I want I can create or destroy,
Selecting with care my actions on a thought,
Applying what life lessons have taught,
To write this & do what I can,
Has this all made me who I am?
