About the Poem

This poem is about showing everyone's purpose.


God what is my purpose in life?
You must first talk to your brother and sister beings.

Sister Flower what is my purpose in life?
Well that is easy you are here to admire my beauty and my pleasant fragrance.

Brother Rain what is my purpose in life?
You are to dance underneath my many uproars.

Brother Sun what is my purpose in life?
You are to be the one who enjoys the warmth of my glow on you back on a summer day.

God I have asked my brother and sister beings what my purpose in life is.
They all told me pointless things that are meaningless to me.

There you are wrong my son.
If there were no you than there would be no one to enjoy these little things,
and there for giving your brother and sister beings no purpose in life.
So your purpose in life is to enjoy every little second of it that you can, be it big or small.
