I was inspired…
Two people told me to swim once, so swim I did.
Three others told me to dive once, so dive I did.
One person told me to float once, so float I did.
But one day I thought, why?
There was no reason, so sink I did.
Then I heard a voice-
It called to me and gave me purpose.
So I swam
And I told everyone to do the same.
But they saw no reason in it, so sink they did.
This made me sorrowful, and I wept.
Then I realized I had purpose
And they did not
So I called.
I told them of the purpose-
They only had to believe.
But the others could not believe.
They wanted to rest
And to be left alone.
So they sank deeper,
And I saw them no more.
