Self and Purpose

Updated on February 24, 2014

Who am I..? I am you...

I am the small coyote who lays close.. to the other one..

seeking only warmth.. from another whom I know..

I can rest for a moment...because I know my other, will watch over me..

yet I still remain aware of the dangers of my life.. from

those who seek to harm me, or anyone different ...from themselves

Yes... look closely, into my you see yourself ..

afraid, lonely.. wondering when you will be happy ..

waiting for the moment when you realize..

you... are blessed to be alive, as a human being ...

born with a to express yourself... in many ways

Look around you ..see what God has given you ..

the power to create beauty.. the power to choose your own destiny..

Yet you blindly follow.. like sheep,

not realizing that the choices you let others decide for you..

define who you the individual... you were created to be ..

find your purpose... open your mind..

you are special.. you are unique..

do not be fooled into thinking...

you are like everyone else..

God made you for a purpose..

      Be original. Great words. I ran into two coyotes last summer they are supposed to mean that the spirit of the coyote may remind you to not take things too seriously and bring more balance between wisdom and playfulness. Interesting photo.

      Beautiful thoughts put into this Wonderful piece of Poetry Mike. Actually I used to talk to my boys this way when they were growing up...I wanted them to be individuals, think for themselves and above all don't follow like sheep.

      Voted Up, & Beautiful.
