What’s Your Purpose? by Joe Reid Kirby III
We’re so busy doing,
Never having time for being,
Not taking seriously the fact that we are not human ‘doers,’
We are human beings …
What is the rainforest without the rain?
The butterfly without the ability to fly?
Something wonderful without the wonder?
Life can be lived on purpose,
Or as a blunder …
Did you mean to be here?
Did you mean to work there?
Was it not certain that you should be with the one you’re with?
Or are you just talking?
Fearful of putting legs on your purpose and walking …
Too loud to ever hear …
Distractions are the only distortions to seeing clear …
For your purpose is to remember that you’re here on purpose,
Your being yourself is your purpose,
Your life is no accident.
