A Reason For Being

Poem By Faith Elizabeth Brigham

we all have a reason for being
or else we wouldn't be here
even the bum under the bridge
has a purpose for living
though he might beg to differ
if you confronted him

life is a precious gift
and we all have something
that we were put on earth to do
besides loving and pleasing
our Maker we are here
to love one another
to help each other
on this journey of life

set aside yourself
put your ego to rest
and you will see how freedom
truly feels and know the joy
of seeing beauty in everything
you will be inspired to write
from deep within your soul
and feel ecstacy not unlike
an orgasim or a mystic breeze

The piece is very soulful. It is very good for us to think from time to time about such things like a reason for our being on the earth...
A lovely poem. Alight with hope. Expressed with wisdom. Regards, Sandra Fowler
