POEMS: Why Did You Come Here? by Trina Graves (about our life’s Purpose)


Why Did You Come Here?

‘Why did you come here? ‘ I asked the daisy
As I lay on the grass feeling dreamy and lazy.
The answer just appeared in my mind
‘I came to add to the beauty you’d find.’

‘Why did you come here? ‘ I asked the bee
Flying so fast I could hardly see.
The bee turned and started to fly more slow
‘I came to help the flowers grow.’

‘Why did you come here? ‘ I asked the ant
As it ran across the beautiful plant.
‘I was alone, but now life’s a dream,
I came to work as part of a team.’

‘Why did you come here? ‘ I asked the cat
As she clawed away on the fireside mat.
She looked right into my eyes with a stare
‘I came to help you become Aware.’

‘Why did you come here? ‘ I asked little Lucky
Our precious, playful Labrador puppy.
‘I told you before, when we were in heaven above
I came to give you unconditional love.’

‘Why did you come here? ‘ I asked my teacher
When showing her my carefully painted picture.
She thought for a moment and began to say
‘I came to guide you along the way.’

‘Why did you come here? ‘ I asked the old man
Who was sat in the park and getting a tan.
The man smiled at me and said, ‘Ever since my birth
I came to enjoy my life here on this Earth.’

Why did I come here? I wanted to know
Then all these things I attracted to show
I came to..
Find beauty, enjoy life, help, guide and share
Unconditional love and become Aware.

    1. I always ponder about our life’s purpose, and I love how the answer may not have to be so complicated… like you so beautifully put it in this poem: simple acts of kindness, love, guidance, having fun, sharing, helping one another to become aware; are the things that bring meaning and purpose to all life. Thank you for reminding us of this truth 🙂 Joy and Love back to you, Amira
